What brought you to The Common School?

I first came to The Common School as a graduate student. I was seeking a student teaching position and had heard what an amazing, progressive learning environment The Common School was. I had also heard that The Common School greatly valued Early Childhood Education, which was unusual.  And, it was true, I quickly learned that The Common School deeply values the early years of a child’s development and strives to protect the integrity of childhood- a value near and dear to my heart.

What do you like best about The Common School?

It is hard to choose just one thing- I could talk about my love for The Common School all day. That said, I would say the incredible sense of community, kindness, and caring that is created among our multi-age student body.
