QOD: Camden Charter School Teacher on Parent Partnerships and the Joy of Learning

Joelle Quick, a kindergarten teacher at Hope Community Charter SchooL
It’s a happy feeling inside.  Every day I wake up and I’m excited to get ready for work.  It’s crazy that feeling of fulfillment that no one can describe—and that is how I feel going to Hope Community Charter School to teach my kindergarten class. Every day my colleagues and I have the privilege to make a difference in the lives of the children parents have entrusted to us as educators. And every day, it is our mission to build the enjoyment of lifelong learners and teach our students the joys of learning—especially reading—that sets us apart from other schools from other schools in Camden.
