    Educational philosophy:  We need to recognize and encourage a variety of pathways for our students to write a spectrum of different success stories.  The world of tomorrow will need people with vocational training, entrepreneurial skills, public/community service focus, advanced communications and networking capability, in addition to college educations, to do work that in many cases has not yet been imagined.  In addition to educating, my goal is to inspire our students to achieve at the highest levels and to live lives that make a positive difference.
