I want to thank you for being one to have taught me the skills I have needed to be successful in school since leaving Kindergarten. I recognize the importance of a solid foundational education in a child’s personal and academic development, and I would not have had that if it were not for you and the other teachers I came to know at Whitehouse School. I appreciate and admire the passion for early childhood education that you displayed in helping me grow into the person I am today, and that you continue to exemplify at Whitehouse Prep.
