Hi My name is Tammy Robison, My son is Aj which which is going into Kellm High school. While he was at Princess Ann Middle school he was on Honor roll the whole year. His strengths are in science and math. He is taking PE online this summer to get extra credit so that hopefully he will be able to go to ATC and get into cyber security, Naval Architect or Robotics & Engineering. Aj has been in all different kinds of sports such as Taekwondo which he is a 1st degree black belt, He also played baseball, soccer, diving and swimming. He also took courses to be a swim instructor and a life guard. To that he has to learn CPR, First aid and rescue. He volunteers at the VA Beach recreation centers to teach the little kids how to swim which he says he really enjoys that a little more than when he volunteers to lifeguard. Aj really really wants to start getting credit for college so that he can get ahead of the game to get his foot in the door to a good college. Aj is really friendly and out going and would be a great asset to your program.Sincerely,Tammy Robison

As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
