What is the most inspiring part of your job? 
"The most inspiring part of my job is the opportunity to create a space for members of the classical education community to renew their wonder for classical education so that they may return to their classrooms and provide that education to future generations. I am inspired by the passion that our educators hold for the classics and the important role they play in the formation of good people."

Favorite classical quote: 
“Nothing is more wonderful that the art of being free, but nothing is harder to learn how to use than freedom.” —Alexis de Tocqueville​
