After we retired, we were amazed at the number of students, teachers, parents, and community members who conveyed to us their belief that we simply can't be finished with education and that they believed we had more to give. Within a few months after retirement, we realized they might be right and recognized how much we missed the day-to-day interaction with our students as well as the professional relationships we had with our colleagues and the energy and excitement that is a part of the process of learning.
We believe that young people will meet the expectations we set for them. The question is who is willing to set that bar high enough and create a culture for teaching and learning that not only expects the best but demands it? We have worked in settings that have done this in the past and want to create that again in the future for the sake of our students and our community.
Our mission has been from the start and will continue to be to provide a viable educational opportunity for parents, students AND teachers outside of the current public/private venues.
