The best thing about teaching is simple: it's the kids. They make it fun. They make me happy. We have a great time together. Jodee Ashby, 3rd Grade Teacher

I work with students who are learning English as a second language—or, sometimes, a third language. I really enjoy River Birch, the students, and the parents. It's a great place to be! Jennifer Pletcher, ELL and Intervention Assistant
