"The first day of class, the kids didn't even know where to stand in the courtroom. On the last day, they took first place in their competition. In between, Mrs. Gadek taught an enormous amount of subject matter and motivated those kids to excel, and she did it with kindness and enthusiasm. Now THAT is what every parent hopes for in a teacher. At a time of dwindling enrollment, when many of us parents are questioning why we send our children to private school, it is wonderful that ICOLPH has Mrs. Gadek to hold up as an example of the kind of quality teaching the kids will receive.”
