Being the parent of a 6th grader, we were naturally concerned about our child's transition to middle school. The move could not have been better and his school experience, awesome. We were so pleased for him to finally have a male teacher. His history teacher is fantastic and the perfect compliment for our son's learning style. Way to go, Chatham Middle!! Keep up the good work.
