What Makes You Excited About Working at MPCS: This year has been like no other year in my 42 years of teaching! Every day is different and brings new challenges that make me think of creative ways to do old and new things. I am excited about the students I get to work with. They are resilient, hard-working students who are full of joy, and they put a smile in my heart every day. I am excited to work with teachers who work together so that we can all be the best that we can be, pandemic or not.
