    I believe that children learn best through movement. Learning needs to be hands-on, multi-sensory and active. I appreciate and celebrate their individual differences.

  • Lois Ross

    School Counselor/Testing

    B.S. Political Science – MTSU

    I believe that children learn best in schools that have a high academic bar and value respect for individual differences, recognize the gifts of all students, nurture development of character and spirituality, and provide authentic, engaging learning experiences. At ESK, all these critical elements are present, and included with academics, providing a solid foundation for a student’s success in life.
