Curriculum Vita: 
Famous Quote: 

“Core texts and core ideas inform our humanity. What does it mean to be human? It is a never-ending quest that threatens to vanish in the present climate of sound bites and slogans that produce only the shallowest of perspectives. We have a mission to transmit the best that has been wondered, and to elicit serious and thoughtful responses from our students. Let us proceed with passion.”
-John Dexter Marble

"Knowledge is in facts; wisdom is in metaphor. The best of education encourages abstractions from facts to create new insights and understandings. This is the essence of the creative process and the foundation of wisdom."
-John Dexter Marble
