Quinn focuses not only on her students academic development, but their personal development as well. She said, “Whether it be committing 26 acts of kindness to honor the victims of the Sandy Hook School tragedy, responding to current event stories by selling loom bracelets for typhoon victims or inviting an ostracized classmate to join them at lunch; when my students see someone in need and are compelled to act, these are my proudest moments.”
