“It is our responsibility to provide our students/children with a unique learning environment where all children feel safe to learn, grow and be themselves...”

-Cortney Greenslet


“...I had the pleasure of having Cortney as a student in my 
Multiculturalism in Education class at the Community College of Vermont 
during the fall semester of 2004.
I was immediately impressed with Cortney's positive demeanor, her 
willingness to let her feelings and passions be known, and her 
attention to detail and deadline…

“...being involved in a child’s school, it is giving the child a sense of pride. It is giving them a feeling of belonging, and a feeling of priority in learning..”
