As a former prep school teacher for 15 years, I have a deep appreciation for all that you do and how challenging your jobs are. Our son is already a different person because of you. It is hard to describe the changes that my husband, Vaughan, and I have witnessed in these short months. Our son chose VA, came to us and said, "This is the only place I want to go. Is this possible?" So, we are blessedly at VA. He is the happiest he has ever been in his life. That is because of you teachers and coaches. He absolutely loves school. Finally our son has teachers who know him, like him, and appreciate him. You push him to his potential and care about him and his uniqueness. You need to know what a HUGE difference you have made in our son’s life in 4 short months. There is no better gift for a parent to know that their child is finally happy at school and appreciated for who they are. We are so very, very grateful to all of you for making his experience at VA so special.
