Presented at:
SCL Conference 2013

ABSTRACT:

A vibrant classical school must also be a vibrant community of teachers, parents, students, administrators and school supporters. Weaving and building a meaningful community of all these people is an art that requires ongoing effort, planning, assessment and adaptation. It also requires that love animates all our relationships and professional interchange. In this seminar we will explore the ways leaders and teachers can build a school that lives up to the name “community.”
