Core Educational Belief:

I think the goal of education is to create better thinkers, problem-solvers, and collaborators. I encourage students to question, challenge their own assumptions and work productively with others. I work to get to know my students, their interests and goals, so that I can help them to grow. They always teach me as much as I teach them.


Why CDO?

I love CDO. It is such a special place: the student body, the teachers, the setting – it's my home. There is such a variety of opportunities for our students and the teachers are exceptional.
