In just this one room, we will have so much additional capability and capacity; this wonderful meeting space down there that’s going to be completely flexible. And it will benefit not just the students and the faculty during the day but also the parent association and special events in the evening. There will be quiet spaces as well as collaborative spaces, and throughout the whole place will be shelves of books, and behind the scenes will be all the state-of-the-art technology we need to fuel their creativity. It isn’t just attractive to students but to teachers as well. And future teachers and students. This kind of space leads to all kinds of positive interactions, and it can do that for a long time to come.

For my family, we picked KO because we felt it was the best school in the area. And it just was fortuitous that I could work here, too. I absolutely love working here. Every day, I wake up and think, ‘I get to go to school today.’ I don’t call it ‘work’ or ‘job.’ It’s going to school. Every student has something wonderful to offer. And I really care about all of them. Even the alums who come back, they’re part of my life, too.
