“My daughter is in Mr. Vernon’s second grade class this year. He has made school such a special and positive experience for her. He is patient and kind and truly cares about his students. He communicates so well to us as parents, and with our children. He has made sure to really get to know my child so that he can help her succeed. Because of Mr. Vernon she wakes up each morning excited to go to school and excited to be in his classroom. The entire school is filled with amazing teachers, and they are led by a principal that is above par as well. Thank you Mr. Vernon, for making such a positive impact in our children’s life. We will never forget second grade.”
