Mission Statement

My professional mission is to facilitate the development of morals, values, and tolerance by stimulating students to use reading and listening skills as resources for lifetime reflection, and build writing and speaking skills that will motivate them to advance society.

Words to Live By

Ubuntu: I am because of you; we are [human virtues; compassion and humanity].

“For, no man can write anything, who does not think that what he writes is for the time the history of the world; or do anything well, who does not esteem his work to be of importance. My work may be of none, but I must not think it is of none, or I shall not do it with impunity.” (Par.12) Emerson, Nature

"A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel." Robert Frost

"Strange, is it not? that of the myriads who / Before us pass'd the door of Darkness through/ Not one returns to tell us of the Road, / Which to discover we must travel too." Edward Fitzgerald (British poet)

"I shall be telling this with a sigh / Somewhere ages and ages hence; / Two roads diverged in a wood, and I / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference." Robert Frost (American Poet)

"The great secret of success is to go through life as a man who never gets used up. That is possible for him who never argues and strives with men and facts, but in all experience retires upon himself, and looks for the ultimate cause of things in himself." Albert Schweitzer, philosopher, physician, musician, Nobelist (14 Jan 1875-1965)
