 Educational Philosophy

“The entire object of true education is to make people not merely do the right things, but enjoy them; not merely industrious, but to love industry; not merely learned, but to love knowledge; not merely pure, but to love purity; not merely just, but to hunger and thirst after justice.”   John Ruskin   
                                               

                                                                                                            
Interests

In her spare time, she enjoys a number of activities: golf, gardening, reading, and traveling. She (She can boast that she survived the mosquitoes in the Arctic Circle, hiked a glacier, and stood in two hemispheres at the same time!). An avid Anglophile, she has enjoyed keeping up with the royals and all things British (She loves suggestions for new British films). You might spot her catching fish in the Cahaba with her son, but reading the Harry Potter series and  The Hobbit is now her favorite pastime!
