Have you ever passed someone in the hallway at the admin building, noticed a new coach on the sidelines, or had someone come fix your tech issue and thought to yourself "Who is this person and where did they come from"? With campuses spread out we can easily go an entire year without meeting lots of teachers and staff, most of whom can be very interesting, to say the least. So come back from time to time to see the latest addition and be ready because you are probably next.
