"What I love most about high school students is their eagerness. So often teenagers in our society get put down as lazy and out of touch, but that has never been my experience. I am amazed every single day by their capacity for curiosity, compassion, joy, and drive all at the same time. I truly believe that every high school student has big hopes for themselves. Sometimes this gets covered up by fear or frustration, but it’s always there and there is so much power in that. It is an honor to be around that kind of power every day." —
