By holding our students and teachers to high expectations, we are able to create an environment that empowers change across a community that I love.

I chose to teach on the peanut field because I knew that I would be surrounded by a team that was passionate about closing the achievement gap. By holding our students and teachers to high expectations, we are able to create an environment that empowers change across a community that I love.

After watching the KIPP Gaston staff pour so much love and commitment into my own daughters, I knew that I wanted to join this movement and work with the youngest members of our Pride. By working with our cubs and their families, we are able to put our students on a path to and through college beginning in their first years of school.
