I am the Principal at Glendale School and have been a Board Member for the past year. Being a member of the Board has been such a rewarding experience for many reasons.

I now understand it has more to do with how we choose to exist in our everyday practice of living. More specifically, how we interact with people. The ones who are easy to care for as well as those who are not. Being at peace is about seeking to understanding the plight of others as well as your own. One does not supersede the other.

Here's to those who try to hold strong to their beliefs.
