“When public schools are judged by how much art and music they have, by how many science experiments their students perform, by how much time they leave for recess and play, and by how much food they grow rather than how many tests they administer, then I will be confident that we are preparing our students for a future where they will be creative participants and makers of history rather than obedient drones for the ruling economic elite.”

2012 was my best year so far. I loved and I lost. And I learned to move on. I learned to live with mistakes. I made new friends in college and met people I hopefully can see more of. I don’t need a New Year to change. May 2013 bring me even more happiness, success and adventure.
