John Sullivan

Hyannis, MA | Years Taught: 1978 – Present

John tries not to look at his students as “his accomplishments” because they succeeded with their own talent. He was simply the one who saw talent in them that they did not know they had and pushed them in the right direction. He approaches teaching with the philosophy that hard work and dedication pay off.
