As our scholars, staff, and families enjoy the holiday season and winter break, we want to express our gratitude for everyone who is working together to build magical schools for our kids. You’ve created a community that wants for all children what we would want for our own; in fact, there are almost 60 of you who are so committed to our schools that you are both employees and Success Academy parents!
Years ago, our CEO and founder Eva Moskowitz decided that Success Academy schools were the best choice for her own children. Today, two of her three children attend Success Academy High School, and dozens of other staff members have made the same choice — and many parents were so enthusiastic about their children’s educational experience in SA schools that they decided to come to work here. Today, all of these SA staff/parents are driven not just by the dual mission of of SA, but their own personal dual mission of delivering an outstanding education for the children of all parents seeking great schools and for the people dearest to their hearts — their own children.
We asked our staff/parents to share some thoughts about what it’s like filling this special dual role. Here’s what they said!
