"The greatest compliment is when a student walks up or a parent calls on the phone and says “thanks”.  We have hundreds of programs we offer to students ranging from homework assistance to project-based learning, to structured physical activity and cooking classes.  But, my most enjoyable moment is when a student or parent simply says thank you."
