I am a huge Steelers fan because my extended family owns the team!

Favorite place on Summit campus

Our lower school library is an incredible space and would have been one of my favorite places in the world as a child. There is still almost nothing more inviting than a cozy room full of inviting book displays and countless hours of wonderful stories in which to lose myself.

One thing I want all my students to know when they leave my classroom

Is that they are loved and have important perspectives to offer the world. I hope each child understands that they are a very important part of a very big wheel, and has begun to grasp both their own value and their responsibility to their communities.
