Why I Choose to Work at Nova

I love the energy at Nova.  I feel the energy come from my colleagues in the form of great ideas, enthusiasm for teaching, and genuine care for one another.  Student energy comes from their joy for learning and it radiates through the school. They are so proud of their hard work!
