Robin Ellis is always available to help not only any students in crisis, but also our staff. Her compassion is greatly appreciated!
Susan Wonderly was very attentive to a student and quickly able to determine that he was having a potentially life-threatening condition. Then, when I visited her class shortly afterward, the students were all calmly and quietly engaged in their reading. AWESOME on both fronts!
