Why I’m Passionate About Quaker Education
It begins in queries and questions!
As a Quaker, I believe there is God in every person; that my work as an educator and leader is to honor and foster the Divine I encounter in each person. I believe that Friends' testimonies, expressed through our schools, enable us to create the world we seek for children.
I love reading speculative fiction (right now my favorite author is Naomi Novik), fiction grounded in particular locations (I just finished Ann Patchett's Tom Lake ), and natural science (next up for me is What an Owl Knows by Jennifer Ackerman).
