    I was so moved when one of our students responded to the question, “How do introverts do at Keys School?” and said, “When introverts are home, they do not seem introverted because they are in their comfort zone. The same is true at Keys. We are a family and everyone is comfortable here, so it does not matter if someone is introverted.” That inclusivity really resonates with me. Our student/family population is extremely diverse (not just ethnically, but religiously, geographically, in learning-style, family structure, interests, passions – diversity in every sense of the word) – and, our community is warm, welcoming, and inclusive!

    Children have always brought me so much joy, but it wasn’t until I entered a teaching credential program back in college, that I realized just how important teachers are and just how passionate I felt about making a positive impact on the education world. I love teaching because each day brings something new and because the children are so genuine and inspiring.
