My 5 favorite things about Austin:

  • Location to other cities in Texas;
  • casual wear always;
  • Town Lake;
  • My church (GMZ);
  • health conscious city

Special programs initiated/implemented this year:

We have AVID strategies on display in the library. Teachers voluntarily teach their classes in the library when using an AVID strategy so that colleagues can come down and see the strategies being modeled.
