    Educational philosophy: In a rapidly changing world where we can essentially guarantee that the future will not look like the present, it's imperative that students develop widely applicable problem solving, math, and communications skills, as well as a broad understanding of the world around them. We should do so by harnessing and encouraging students' natural love of learning, and always through safe environments that allow them to find their passions, make mistakes, and try again. With this foundation, students will be equipped to adapt, thrive amid adversity, and, ultimately, find success and fulfillment, no matter what the future holds.
