We’re all in this to help shape our kids’ lives – teachers and ESPs together. You can’t talk about education about being a family if you don’t include half the family.
Quote by: James "Jim" Johnson, Bus Driver
VT teachers stand smiling with signs; one says "Proud to Teach."

Together we're stronger. Together we're heard.
