    So excited to see Ms. McGovern as a principal…just two short years and we’ll be back at Dublin El again! She was such a wonderful 5th grade teacher for my now off-to-college son.

    As your Aunt who was in Teacher Education many years in Michigan and Nebraska loved hearing your video. Your school has an inspiring leader and research shows that makes a great difference in a school.
