What brought me to Bitney was the opportunity. After a summer of trying to get a position at a traditional high school, I saw a posting for Bitney and had not been previously aware of charter schools. When I interviewed and started here, it took a little while to get into, but after my second full year, I thought, “This is the only place I want to be”. During that second year, my son started going here and his experiences definitely helped cement my relationship with Bitney. This will be my 14th year as a teacher at Bitney Prep.
I really love the kids here, It’s really fun to help them find where they fit. I love when they understand something, they get to share that with other people, and you know that you helped them understand the world a little bit better. The staff here is also incredible; we have a lot of fun together and enjoy each other’s company.The people that I work with make the environment worth coming back to everyday.
