Why I love Pivot: I love Pivot’s commitment to helping students be successful in the best way possible by providing  a unique option to traditional schools. Pivot provides parents and students for whom a traditional setting was not working the option of completing  school from home or our small school site while still being connected to peers and teachers. The staff at Pivot is committed to fostering student relationships by going above and beyond. 

My favorite thing about teaching at Pivot: My favorite thing about teaching at Pivot is the sense of family. Pivot teachers and staff are always collaborating and are looking out for their students. It truly is a team effort and it is reflected in the success of Pivot. 

Interesting fact about Lindsey: In her free time, Lindsey runs a competitive jigsaw puzzling group with her friend. Every month, they rotate to a new location and compete in teams of four to see who can complete the puzzle in the fastest time! 

Thoughts on Pivot is celebrating 10 years: It is amazing to see the amount of growth Pivot has experienced over the past 10 years. We are constantly learning and adapting our methods to better suit our students. Over the past 10 years, we have gone through multiple stages of growth and change and continue to find new methods and techniques to serve students in the best way possible.
