Fraternal twins Nyla and Nazier have blossomed in the family atmosphere of The Children’s Guild DC Public Charter School, fostered by Principal Bryan Daniels and school staff. Travis, the proud father of these students, is celebrating his son making the Honor Roll once again. His typically shy daughter is thriving in the welcoming family atmosphere at TCGDC.
