What I Find Rewarding About D&E:

I enjoy the family atmosphere that D&E provides. I find reward in watching our students grow in both knowledge and expertise as they develop a love of learning that will continue throughout their careers. Watching them become confident and competent in their chosen profession is very satisfying.
