...and now a word from Ms. Poultney...
My purpose is to prepare my students for the challenges and opportunities that they will encounter as they become adults. I believe that with every freedom and advantage that we are given comes great responsibility (Where have you heard this before?). It is vital that my students master the reading, writing, and thinking skills that will empower them to make positive changes in their school, community, city, state, country, and world.
