The Falconer: What do you think about the homeroom block and is it useful for your students?
Ms. Purdy: I have mixed opinions, its beneficial to me as an advisor so that way I can run meetings for clubs and organizations that I advise during that time it's also advantage because it gives me an opportunity to work with students who need help however I do think it's difficult for some students to stay at an academic task for 85 minutes at the end of the day. When they've completed their academic work.
The Falconer: What do think about Mr. Balestracci leaving?
Ms. Purdy: I think anytime there is an administrative change there is a period of transition that requires flexibility, cooperation, and patience. I've worked with Mr. Balestracci as a colleague and most recently as a member of his faculty, he will be sorely missed on many levels. I appreciated his leadership style because he was approachable and had an open door policy, he was also very dedicated to all members of our school community.
