My students are smart, talented kids who struggle with things that most of us can't even imagine! Many struggle with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, sensory processing issues, mental illness or other roadblocks to success. Yet they don't let these struggles hold them back. My students are authors, athletes, actors, coders, web designers, employees and more! They may need a little extra help in some areas and I am doing all that I can to help them succeed in whatever they choose to do. They are determined to move onward and upward while pursuing their dreams. My students are inspiring, motivated, hard-working, determined and intelligent. They teach me every day to not take myself too seriously and to do my best. Our library is a learning commons that seeks to provide them with information, experience, technology and literacy all in one place. Thank you for helping us do so and helping them be the best version of themselves.
