  1. Supported me in front of parents; allowed faculty input into the reading and math series we plan to purchase. Supported me with my tech challenges during hybrid learning. Supported mounting butterflies as part of the Butterfly Project to create 1.5 million ceramic butterflies in honor of the 1.5 million Jewish children who died in the Holocaust.
