Alicia Selestino is truly important to the 6th grade team. She's reliable, helpful, and always willing to step in, as she did for me on Monday. Thanks to her, the tiny humans were taken care of :)

Irma Bauer has been so helpful with TAC issues and keeping our technology straight. Thanks to her always for responding quickly and efficiently to all the concerns.

Madelyn Winnek is a positive force and a caring teacher. That's all I have to say about that ;)
