Shortly after it was announced that Denise Sopa was being transferred for the new school year, she headed to Bay View Elementary.
"I went and met the staff after school. I thought it was important. I shared my professional background and told them about me personally. They needed to know that I'm elementary (experienced) and that I'm collaborative and have an open door policy," said Sopa. "I wanted to alleviate their fears. I have a lot to learn there but once I get there it will all come together."
