Ms. Zimmer enjoys working in an atmosphere where she knows the faculty, staff, and students all want one another to succeed, whether that's in the classroom, on the field, or in real life. Not only do the students receive a great education, but they are mentally and socially prepared to face the daily challenges after their high school experience.
"Mental health is just as, if not more, important as physical health in a young man's life. Teaching students that it is normal to feel upset and stressed sometimes while giving them the tools to cope with those feelings is crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle."
