    What I love about LaSalle Academy is the ability evolve with the times, however still remain true to there morals, values, and integrity. How much LSA does for people in need. A safe and comfortable working environment, where mistakes are seen as opportunities to learn and grow. LSA, forever in my heart. 

    I accepted this offer because when I am at LSA I feel complete. I feel that I am doing the right thing. Whenever/ however I help I feel that I have done something good. I would like to give back to a school that did so much for me. I did not realize it at the time, how fortunate I was until I left and starting working. LSA operated, and still does operate as a well oil machine. LSA takes education to another level. LSA cared how I was going to be shaped as a person in the community. I would like to incorporate any innovation for the next generations.
