"Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians. It is to unsettle their minds, widen their horizons, inflame their intellects, teach them to think..." ~ Robert M. Hutchins

The sun is quickly setting on the summer of 2016. As of today, my colleagues are back in school, learning and preparing for the arrival of students on September 1st. It is both daunting and invigorating to plan for what's on the horizon as another school year begins. Here's to a year of wonder and adventure, of balancing challenging conditions and smooth sailing while keeping an even keel.

She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, 
and take an insect view of its plain." ~  Henry David Thoreau

"Study how water flow smoothly and freely between the rocks. 
Also learn from holy books and wise people. 
Everything - even mountains, rivers, plants and trees - 
should be your teacher." ~  Morihei Ueshiba
