Talented. Passionate. Devoted to helping students realize their potential artistically, academically, and socially.
The heartbeat of our school

They understand the particular challenges our students face, and are deeply committed to working with students and their families to ensure each child is equipped with the skills and tools needed to thrive in the classroom and beyond.
They inspire, lead, and nurture — every child, every day.
