My students are curious, funny and incredibly perceptive and mature. They have explored the seven continents, worked together as a team to create a family and support that would make one fall in love with peace once again in this day and age! They are eager and waiting for some individual who will help them to develop their skills further and continue to challenge them in all the ways that matter!

I kindly urge you to visit our room and see them first hand!

My school is a supportive place where all have a voice in what we do! It is a school of mutual respect for children and adults and where opportunity awaits in growth and personal development. If not for this rare and unique opportunity abroad, there is no where else I would rather be! It is simply the best!

Very sincerely,

Nicole Brauch
