Jo Ritchey: I really like being there as a substitute teacher, as teachers leave good plans, and administration and security readily support me. It is a 3 years new school, very large, but I feel a sense of community whenever I'm on site. I hear from teachers and administrators and support staff that there is desire for positive growth and continual evaluation and communication. There are some gang issues and some disciplinary/course plans that need addressing, but it feels safe to be there, and the teachers I have met are dedicated to student achievement and lifelong success.
