As I listen to my grandson talk about school and his teacher with pride, and see how happy he now is, I truly appreciate the Joppa administrators and especially his teacher, Mrs. Ann. She has helped him overcome complicated circumstances and to be accepted and welcomed by his peers. I thank God for leading his family to move to Grainger County and to Joppa School.
