    Kramer is on the move...UP! You can feel the energy...it's electric...I fell in love with Kramer MS within 2 minutes of entering the building... Principal Simmons is a real live To Sir With Love/Room 222 principal Octavia Shaw is a very special woman...for Kramer it is not at all a matter of where they have been and there is no limit to how far these kids can go how fast...all Kramer needs is some more support from the rest of DC and metro DC that is outside of Ward 8... Anacostia is poised to make new history...and I am betting on Kramer. It's going to be so exciting and heartening to watch Kramer knock it out of the park!
