Associate Head of School for General Studies
"As educators, we succeed when we inspire students to surpass their own expectations and become agents of their own success. When we aim high -- realistically and authentically -- students will as well, even when it is higher than they think they can go. Leading and empowering young people through these magical moments is a sublime joy."
