Effective, transformational education requires a close partnership between teachers and students. While we often think of partnerships as parties contributing equally to the relationship, in the case of teachers and students, this is rarely the case. Teachers have a powerful role in helping students to understand themselves, the purpose of a classical and Christian education, and their own potential contribution to the life of their school. And it all starts with a faculty’s understanding of the things that students desire and need the most.

They are blessed with seven children, three dogs, two cats and a rabbit. Really.
