This blog is dedicated to my crew and all my students at the amazing Springfield Renaissance School!

Last night was our second graduation.  Second year of 100% college acceptance.  I am so proud of our accomplishments and so proud to be a founding teacher at this school.  As I tell my crew of my travels, I hope that they will travel with me next year.

Each day, I ask of my students to dig deep, think deep, question the world, each other and to push themselves.  Now it is time that I do the same.

In the letter I wrote to my crew, I included this Mark Twain quote which speaks to me and is what I hope my crew learns from my adventures next year!

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
