Julie Wingate | Preschool Teacher "Where else can you read with a child or take a walk, eat pancakes or mess around with fingerpaint? Hugs and laughter prevail. Watching students move up the hall, mature, move on to high school and even college and still come back to visit at Orchard is an enormous delight. My son is a graduate of Orchard so I have a wealth of personal memories as well. Friends that we both made at Orchard still enrich our lives. My colleagues inspire me to work harder, learn more and think more deeply. Just as we encourage children to be life-long learners, we are a community of life-long learners. Teachers are supported by the school to attend workshops, professional development and seminars. One of my greatest joys is the campus itself. Have you seen the maple trees in the fall? What stories the giant oak by the cabin could tell. Have you experienced the making of maple syrup? And a wildflower walk through the woods in the spring will make your heart sing. This is a wonderful place to be."
