“I look forward to going to school every day. It's a happy, cheerful place where learning is fun and something you want to do. I hope to help my students believe in themselves and see that there is nothing they can't do.”
“What I’ve enjoyed most about working in technology at Lamplighter is that there’s always a new challenge just around the corner, and opportunities to dive deeply into new areas and learn a lot while building new systems, all in support of kids getting a great education.”
“For more than 30 years I have loved and cherished every moment of being a part of this community. Having attended professional development all throughout the country, doing the work of JEDI, Mindfulness, Cooperative Learning, Science, Brain Research, and self-study helps me to be a better teacher and peer. To say that Lamplighter has been a gift is an understatement.”
