Your Work Does Not Go Unnoticed

A couple months ago, Dr. David Hough visited the Riverview Gardens School District in St. Louis and shared his visit in the News Leader. Many of you may know this area as the Michael Brown area. I know it as my first teaching job and the place I built relationships with some of the best educators and families around. Like the staff at Riverview, the Bowerman team is working hard everyday to make our classrooms engaging, relevant, and welcoming to our kiddos. Many judge our families and school by police reports in the area, but we know there's much more going on in Bowerman. I notice you working late, collaborating, comforting kids, and searching for a new intervention to give our kids the best each day. Thank you! Your work does not go unnoticed!
