I have had the pleasure of teaching middle school students for fifteen years in four different schools in the South Florida area. It is to my amazement that Attucks Middle surpasses each of these in teacher quality and training, innovativeness, and sheer devotion towards students and teaching! I am honored to work at this school alongside talented teachers, and progressive and knowledgeable administrators. I have never seen an ESE, ELE support staff who cared for their students more than Attucks does. Every student counts at AMS!
