HOT Schools Quote

“You didn’t ask this but what I most appreciate was the clear efforts made to bring quality and variety of experiences here for us. There were things that brought tears to my eyes-not just inspired me. I developed new values not just techniques.”

Deborah Eskra, Nathan Hale School, Summer Institute 2014
