We are EPIC! Where I am because we are. Though this school year began differently, in true EPIC fashion, we found ways to rise meeting the needs of individual learners in culturally responsive ways. As leader of our learning community, I advocate for many voices continuing our tireless work of crafting engaging programs and activities toward the educational goals of our student body. Challenging and rigorous, yet meeting the social-emotional needs of young learners, I remain dedicated to developing a school community that increases student outcomes toward a better and brighter tomorrow.
