"My focus is to develop the students' ability to "bring something new to the table." Colleges and ultimately, employers, will be looking for candidates who are able to think, reason, and bring insight to their institutions. By nurturing creativity, critical thinking and problem solving, as well as developing solid Habits of Mind (Costa) students will welcome challenges and be productive, successful, happy members of society." - Schwartz
