I am a teacher at Devonshire. I've had experiences at several other schools, and Devonshire is a unique and wonderful school. Our Project Adventure curriculum separates us from other schools in the Columbus area. We operate with an experiential learning cycle, and spend more time "doing" than other schools. All grades participate in an indoor climbing unit, and also attend overnight camp. These experiences create fabulous memories, and offer a really unique learning opportunity. Devonshire is truly a diverse school. In my class this year alone, I have 9 nationalities represented. How cool! My coworkers are committed, caring professionals. We are always striving to be the best we can be. We have great resources, both in material items and the people in the building. Devonshire is a great place to be!
