Seeing students flourish academically, socially, and emotionally is incredibly rewarding.  Moreover, being able to support and guide teachers and staff as they excel in their roles while fostering a positive learning environment adds a profound layer of joy and excitement.”

Superintendent Fields says, “Throughout the application and interview process, Ms. Anderson demonstrated to me and members of the SBDM Council that she will be a great leader for T. C. Cherry. She is committed to building relationships and creating a positive learning environment for all students, staff, and families.”
