Mrs. Tyus was an amazing asset for us during career week. Her ability to connect with students and engage them in the topic was superb. Her ability to transition between grades and still have the students engaged and focused was admirable.  Students were eager to learn about different career options and the education required to achieve the career of their dreams. Mrs. Tyus was able to break down the information allowing the students to follow along easily. We were very lucky to have her as a member of our committee.

Ms. Tyus,
Thank you for your support to prepare our 1200 students with information about career and college readiness.  The skills you presented to our students was critical. You did an excellent job getting our students pumped up about endless possibilities beyond 12th grade.  It was amazing to watch our young students discuss what they could be in life due to your information presented on the morning news. Our stu dents are in a better position to be successful due to the exposure of the various topics and business presented from you daily.
Mr. Thompson, Assistant Principal
