Which of LuHi’s core values (Christian love, excellence, community, family) most resonates for you and why? Community resonates most with me because it is so important to me to create a classroom community where my students feel comfortable, confident, and excited to come to class each day. By working together and encouraging positive relationships in the classroom, we can build a strong LuHi community where everyone feels included.
