What do you hope to see Windwood accomplish in the next 35 years? 

My dream is that the collaboration between CCSD educators and the Windwood Staff is flourishing as much as the academic instruction the students are receiving. When one opens the doors to the school, active learning is taking place in both classrooms; counselors, social workers, nurses and doctors are working with the teachers to help meet the students’ social and emotional needs with the great care and respect students need and deserve. Windwood’s beautiful property will continue providing a place for spirited boys to heal and learn what it means to become the young men we all dream they can be.  I hope for the next 35 years as many youngsters as need it can forge their path to wellness here.
