“In an age where relationships so easily dissolve for lack of commitment, children are strengthened by the knowledge that their class teacher loves them, will stand by them, and will accompany them on this part of their journey through life. Such knowledge gives children faith in the power of human relationships to endure.”
— Roberto Trostli, author of Rhythms of Learning

Children move through grades one through eight with the same teacher. When a teacher has the chance to carry a class of students for a number of years, they come to know, understand and value one another in a deep way, aiding in healthy and meaningful learning.
