Why CIRCLE?     I am invested in the work of CIRCLE as it brings together my deepest values of education, equity, community and social change.

Favorite book related to inclusiveness:     The Lost, Daniel Mendelsohn. I chose this text as it speaks to the relationship between knowing who we are, where we came from and how we need to make sense of these connections over time.
