Being a teacher at TPES means working in a community that values high expectations. As a TPES teacher, I strive to reach each child and to reach each family in a positive way. It also means working in an environment that values a high sense of community, both between the students/families and staff members.

Although I have only been at TPES for one year, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve this community as a Resource Teacher. Just in my short time here I know the dedication that the TPES staff has towards their students and families. Being a teacher at TPES means putting forth hard work and dedication by working together with one another, students and their families. I am excited to continue working as a Resource Teacher and look forward to collaborating with classroom teachers and working with small groups to ensure my students meet their goals.

Being a teacher at TPES means we are respectful, responsible, and kind to others and our environment. It also means that we challenge and push ourselves to become the best teachers and we expect the same from our students. We set standards for ourselves and students high so we are constantly progressing. We support one another as a staff so that we can, in turn, support our students.

Being a teacher at TPES means raising up compassionate and confident children who listen with understanding and speak with clarity for the meaningful, creative building up of the diverse community.  
Shelly Suggs

From the moment I became a teacher at TPES, I knew I had found my home away from home. I have always perceived it as a privilege to teach/work at TPES. I believe we all feel this way.  The nature of the staff, families and community has always been conducive to mutual support, with an emphasis on pushing ourselves to be even better.   This latest obstacle with Covid has been daunting, but as TPES teachers, it is our job to support each other, finding new and creative ways to reach our kids.
