“I believe that education is one of the most powerful forces for change in the world. Through the education of our young people we prepare the next generation of decision makers, artists, scientists, business and spiritual leaders. It is through education that we open possibilities for each student, so that they are empowered to live lives that are satisfying and productive. It’s my purpose to assist educators, at all levels, as they seek to provide children with an education that not only helps them learn to make a living; but helps them learn how to live.”
