Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year here at JMCA! I would like to take this opportunity to reintroduce myself. I am Victor Claud, and I am starting my 11th year of teaching overall, and my 4th year here at JMCA. I like to remind my students that although I am a teacher, I am also a parent first. I have a wonderful young daughter named Chelsey; as well as an awesome son named Grayson that I am very proud of. (I also have a wonderful wife named Karen that I’ve been married to for over 21 years)! Time has flown by as I recall watching many of your sons and daughters grow from year to year here at JMCA! Thank you for all that you have done for your sons and daughters, it’s been a pleasure to watch them grow into wonderful young students. Speaking of wonderful young students, Robin Williams (in the movie Dead Poets Society) was once quoted as saying –
“No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.”
I believe that our children will indeed change the world. It happens one smile and one step at a time.
