"Your work is amazing and forward-thinking. I know April, my daughter would like to envision future schools as micro multi-aged schools where subjects of real import are taught to children, that nature would play a large part of the education for all ages, that history be taught truthfully and that all are treated as individuals with no labeling of special needs but each child taught according to their individual needs.

Dr. LaWana Richmond is a selfless cognizant leader. She pays attention to details and will make decisions that benefit the common good. She is trustworthy and transparent.
As an educator and a parent, I believe that she will serve in an unbiased way.
