Authentic

We show up fully as ourselves, with integrity, self-awareness, and a proper understanding of “what it takes” to be a great colleague, strong educator, and fulfilled person.

Creative

We leverage resources creatively to solve problems and dive right in. We often consult with others, but you can also propose solutions and get things rolling without much guidance.

Curious

There’s always more to know, and we're hungry for it. We constantly absorb information from a variety of sources. If something doesn’t make sense, we ask questions until it does.
