Why I Choose to Work at Nova

I believe in the pursuit of Truth, Goodness & Beauty, which is foundational in classical education. I love Nova's emphasis on virtue and character formation, and I am grateful to be part of this community as a parent and teacher. I see the benefits of a classical education in the lives of our 4 daughters who are Nova students.
