“Your function is not to reinvent the work you did last year but to identify and organize the students who need help the most and to teach them.”



"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe."

-- Anatole France


Laboring toward distant aims sets the mind in a higher key, and puts us at our best.
