The best part of my job would be the students and staff. Everyday I am excited to come to work and see all of the children and teachers. They are the best. They inspire me to make a difference in the lives of children.
You can do anything you set your mind to doing in life. Set your goals and the steps it will take you to get there and do it. Make a difference everyday.
Creating a community among staff centered on improving the lives of children through education is important. Enlisting teachers who know how to work as a team and who value the benefits of teamwork. Surround yourself with excellence.
I am most proud of the hard work and dedication to education I see everyday in the staff and students. We have accomplished amazing results in the past few years due to this strong commitment to success on the part of everyone. We have all come together to raise student achievement and to create an atmosphere that is conducive to loving learning and pride in who we are at Palomino Intermediate.
