Educational Philosophy:
The one thing an education can offer is opportunity; the opportunity to gain knowledge and think, to work cooperatively with others and to dream the unthinkable. If our schools are able to provide these opportunities, our students will have the possibility to do great things.

Favorite Quote:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?' Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone, and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." -
Marianne Williamson
