"The reason I jumped at the opportunity to come back and teach at Trumansburg is that I had such an incredible experience growing up here in this district, and in this community. I have very fond memories of my teachers who inspired me, and I expected that was the type of experience that was still going on here every day. I have found that to be true — and then some. We have an amazing staff and team at every turn."
