I teach in Vernon because emphasis is placed on what's best for the whole child. Teachers are encouraged to collaborate with focus not only on academics, but the social and emotional well being of our students. In Vernon, I feel valued as a professional. Teachers are respected for the expertise they bring to the field. Vernon recognizes the need for continued professional growth and provides ample opportunities for professional learning. This is a great place to work because in Vernon, you are not just part of a school or district; you become part of the community.

Why I Teach

I teach because it provides me with the opportunity to help mold children of character, moral fortitude, confidence, gentleness and honor. I teach because what I do affects the outcome of our community, our country, our global society and, most importantly, the soul prosperity of each child I come into contact with. I am inspired to teach because everyday I get to experience children awakening to their true potential.
