Home of the Stars!

Eternal thanks to our children, families, and friends for bestowing upon me eight of the most enchanting years of my life! I could not ask for a more engaged and caring staff, a more altruistic team of parents, a more jubilant assortment of students. I am grateful for the time I had here and as promised I will be sure to stop by and visit with children throughout the year! My best goes out to all of you in the years to come! Your children are doing what they need to be doing...and doing it well!
