"It gave me unmeasurable joy to help develop an interest in science among my students, and to grow as a teacher through the technological developments of the past four decades."
Leaundra Clay, Class of 2018
"It is my hope to foster an exciting academic atmosphere in which every stakeholder is empowered to surpass norms and take responsibility for their learning and growing."

"My mother helped me in understanding her students’ reasons for putting themselves through such difficulty – to reap the rewards that their learning brought. Independence, self-reliance, and choice."
