Teacher Ambassador

I am currently in my fourth year in 27J, and I honestly cannot imagine myself anywhere else. Our philosophy revolves around the idea of belief. We believe in our students, we believe in each other, and we believe in ourselves as teachers. This belief permeates the relationships that are built in this district. Because of this, I know that I am valued, and I have people willing to support me and help me learn.

We also care about our students and value the community we serve. As a member of Brighton myself, I can attest to the warmth and kindness the town has to offer.
