What Calls Me to Education?

Quite simply, I believe that access to high quality education is a moral imperative. Education, at its best, not only supports a young person’s self-actualization but also community-actualization. Justice and education are intertwined. Ensuring that we provide high-quality teaching and learning for all students is the critical pathway to a more just world.
