Please come by our team space and say "hello".
Our team name has many different meanings. The term originates in the Greek "harmonÃa", meaning "joint,agreement, concord". In Ancient Greek music, the term was used todefine the combination of contrasted elements: a higher and lowernote.
The term "Harmony" also means "internal calm and tranquility" (according to Merriam Webster). It further reads, harmony also means "an interweaving of different accounts into a single narrative."
We hope that the different backgrounds and experiences of all of us on our team will enhance the learning opportunities for all students as different perspectives are intertwined into a harmonious common story.
