What Do You Love Most about Tattnall?

I love the commitment to education. We all enter education in order to educate, and Tattnall puts a premium on that goal. Our society, often, likes to think that school is nothing more than a social networking platform like Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. It simply is not. Education is a serious endeavor that takes commitment from all of the stakeholders involved. Tattnall understands this. I love Tattnall because everyone understands that education matters and that education matters because education is transformative. I believe Tattnall is transformative, and I believe it is a space that is conducive to allowing transformation to happen. Tattnall truly is a place to cultivate wholeness.

Favorite Verse or Inspiration:

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not." - John 1:1-5 KJV
