Bianca implements this philosophy by fostering strong relationships within the Annandale Pyramid, focusing on student success in academics, behavior, and wellness. She ensures that families have equitable access to the information that is crucial to their student’s success. Bianca’s work ethic and personal demeanor have helped her school build a caring culture, earned through the respect and trust she demonstrates to all stakeholders.
