    I have been a substitute teacher at PS 305 for the past 2 years. The Principal and the staff and are the most gracious helpful caring bunch of educational professionals I have yet to encounter. They truly care about the children and the community. It was a an absolute surprise and I have taught in many schools.... Dr. Mortlley is a female version of Lean on me!(movie)
