They are going out of their way to both volunteer as judges and setup for our inaugural Dealey Robotics event, and being a chaperone on our first field trip. This assists me as a Robotics coach, but more importantly supports Slade's future years as apart of FIRST.Cherryholmes

Tom Dwyer and Mary Coles Because they sit down with the Dwyer triplets every week and solve difficult Physics and Algebra problems every week as a family. In this family, "extra credit" = "required". Ha! Their backgrounds as engineers are pushing their students to be excellent at Science, Engineering, Math and Technology. I get weekly e-mails with pushback on some of my problems, which stirs great discussions that I feel the entire family is learning from. Moreover, Tom volunteered as a Judge at Dealey's Inaugural Qualifier which really supported the event.Cherryholmes

Rosa Rafae lShe supports Dyanne's academic success. She supports Dyanne's pursuit of Robotics by being present during setup and takedown of our recent inaugural event, and plans on being a chaperone at their girl's first meet this weekend.
