We are so proud of our son, Justin, for making the Dean's list twice (Spring, 2013) and excited to share that he has added political science to his major, along with a minor in psychology and he is currently looking at graduate programs to continue his post-secondary education. We would like to thank several extraordinary teachers and coaches in our Valley View School District for helping to prepare Justin for his college experience, including: Mark Levine, Anthony Smith, Krista Simpson, Dr. Michael Moro, and Chuck Niebling. We know that it was the way in which these teachers taught, coaches coached and mentors mentored that helped our son achieve both the educational and life successes he is now having - NOT endless testing and assessments. Thank you, teachers, for all you do, despite all the obstacles, to help our children achieve success in whatever avenue of life they choose. Way to go, Justin! We are very proud!
