“I think I might have the best job in the world. Every day, I get to teach students who want to be here, who’ve made a huge commitment to come here and study. I admire that commitment, and I respect it.”

“This is not a place for the dispassionate. The students here care about their work, in the arts and in academics. They are passionate about seeing how far their talent can take them. As teachers, we have to be just as passionate. Our students challenge us every time we walk into the classroom.”
