“I was first drawn to YCIS when I learned about its dual language program and approach to educating the whole child. What continues to amaze me about YCIS is the close community of staff, students, and families. This environment makes it easy for teachers to stay passionate and motivated to give the children who enroll in this school the best education possible. I truly appreciate the ability to challenge what I know as an educator, to continue to strive to make a lasting impact for the children and families with my fellow colleagues.”
