Additionally, we have our Center For Performing and Fine Arts Center and the University Scholars and Advanced Ideas Center:
Mrs. Todd and Ms. Duerr – Special Education and Resource
Mrs. Todd and Ms. Duerr traveled in this freezing weather to provide support for my 2 sons in our home this morning. They sat down with my sons to discuss their post high school graduate/college/career goals and inspirations, and develop “game plans” to be successful in attaining success. They offered study tips and showed little tricks on canvas. We were able to review the past semester, as well as prepare for the remaining of the year. My sons have a clearer vision of what they need to do and how to do it. The visit helped them feel more comfortable reaching out for help with questions that may arise. While very professional, Mrs. Todd and Ms. Duerr have a niche in relating to their students with a positive rapport. I threw several questions at them throughout the visit. Without hesitation they provided clear, understandable answers. Not only did my sons have a “to do” list, but the teachers left with one too. Their willingness to go above and beyond is quite evident. I could see confidence in my sons which got lost while in the public school system. It was such a refreshing, but yet productive visit! My sons talk about going to them sometimes in West Chester!
Mr. Paffas – U.S. Government History
I am continually impressed with Mr. Paffas and his work. He managed to turn a class that I would not have wanted to take and turned it into the virtual class I look forward to the most. Speaking from personal experience, a lot of students’ favorite class is either the one they have the highest grade in or one they are especially gifted in. Neither of these being the case for me in Mr Paffas’ class, I can still say that his is my favorite! Good job.
Ms. Martin – Language Arts Teacher
Ms. Martin makes learning so much fun and she is always teaching us in a way that makes the lesson really easy to understand. She also relates to us in a way, and adds games like Kahoot and Quizlet to make the lessons even more fun.
