“Mr. C. is an amazing teacher. He is loving, caring, and helps each student individually. He teaches his fourth grade class to try their hardest and not compare their level of learning to anyone else. My daughter who used to not like going to school now cries when she has to miss it. Recently my daughter had heart surgery and he got all the fourth and fifth grade to wear red for her and sent us a video of all of them letting her know they cared (he also sent his own video and came to the house to visit). He goes above and beyond and I can’t thank him enough for all he has done. He is truly making a difference in the lives of these kids. He sends the parents updates and let us know how much he loves them. We feel your love Mr. C. and are so grateful!”

“There are not enough words in the English language to describe how incredible Mr. C is. He has a genuine love for his students and it is shown in the respect they show him in class. My daughter went from fighting with me to go to school last year, to not wanting to miss a second of class this year. She has also accelerated in Math and Reading which was a struggle before. Mr. C. has given my daughter the confidence she needed to succeed by not comparing her to others but allowing her to be her. I love the tradition his class has of singing “Sweet Caroline” to end the day. Mr. C. is an amazing teacher and if your child gets the chance to have him, you will feel like you hit the lottery.”
