Andi Kent, Sennett Middle School- You are such an amazing person. I love working with you. I think it's inspirational, the way that you always give kids the benefit of the doubt and work to help them understand and get what they need to be successful. You do so much to make sure that kids are included and being supported in and out of the classroom.
