A Message from the Coach

Dearest Dream Team,

I can't believe year 1 is just about complete for me!! You all have made this year worth every month, day, hour, minute, second, of hard work! This hasn't been an easy year but it has been a rewarding year and I am so grateful for the effort that you all have put forth all year, despite the challenges! You all have made my first year as director a success! Success is defined to me as growth for all and I can say that I've seen each of you and scholars grow in some capacity this year! For that I have joy in my heart. :)

There is still work to do but, I am confident that we are going to take HP to the top with the continuation of building a strong culture and getting instruction right from the start. I hope that each of you have a great summer break.

Ms. Smart, Mr. Wright, and Mr. Shepherd- I am going to miss each of you but, I know that you will do great things! Ms. Smart, the educational system in Chicago needs your talent, take them to the next level! You are an excellent educator. Mr. Wright, grad school doesn't have a chance- you are an amazing guy and it has been incredible seeing your growth! Mr. Shepherd, the future is bright for you! Continue to press forward and give everything 100% effort and nothing will stop you!

I love you all! Thank you for making me better!!

The Dream Team Will Fight,
