Canyon View All– Star
The CVS All-Star for the month of March is Michael Mann. Michael has worked as a middle school teacher at CVS for one and a half years. One of the things he likes best about working at CVS is the opportunity that it provides him to help his students achieve both academic and emotional growth. While not at work Michael enjoys spending time with his wife and new baby. Michael says that if he could go anywhere in the world he would want to go back to the Sandals Resort in the Bahamas where he spent his honeymoon. Canyon View School is lucky to have a dedicated and creative teacher like Michael working with our students.
