T2S

From the start, along with Leadership and Empowerment, Literacy represents the mission T2S has for providing students growth paths and opportunities that are second to none. For us, Literacy has never meant just comprehending the printed word, that would be too easy, and an epic disservice to our future Leaders. While still having the luxury of time on their side, to be successful, students must quickly educate themselves to read, process and then navigate at speed the unwritten nuances of our overlapping, self-interest driven cultures. If, this art is honed, then any vision of sustainable accomplishment is achievable. Hopefully students will use the works we offer to embrace reasoning and action. "Who Moved My Cheese?"...is more than a reactionary ask. Change punctuation and the question becomes a subtle but powerfully enlightening statement. Become Who, and Move Cheese.
