"I am passionate about public education and I am driven and motivated by doing what is best for kids. Every decision that I make will be made with this premise in mind. In my many years as an educator, one truth has revealed itself over and over again - open communication is critical for success at all levels. In order for us to continue moving forward we must work together towards the same vision."- Christina Compton
