Ana had the pleasure to speak at Gillingham Charter School’s assembly earlier today! Gillingham’s mission is to be a schoolhouse that students, teachers, and parents want to go because, “It is a place where everybody knows your name, and they are all so glad you came!” Students don’t go to Gillingham merely to hang out with friends, learn facts, pass a test, or to prepare for college. It is clear that at Gillingham, students feed their minds and their souls. Students love to learn and they learn to live a full life, rich in relationships with self, others, nature, and ideas in the small classes. What a special place!
