Three Thoughts:

Things I love about Belmont Day… 1. The community values are alive and active among both students and adults; 2. Knowledgeable, cooperative, flexible, encouraging colleagues; 3. The freedom to teach great students a curriculum I love in the way that I feel is best for them.

If I could give a child one quality it would be… the capacity for honest, compassionate, and insightful self-awareness and reflection.

My Capstone Project would be… a writing project (poetry, fiction, investigative non-fiction), learning or making a musical instrument, or something involving a lot of hiking and being in the outdoors—so, a poetic journal about my journey into the wilderness to make a Native American flute.
