    Ban the average! These words waken a passion in us to develop a new vision of educational excellence. A vision focused on developing independent learners through guided inquiries facilitated by passionate educators.

    Our belief is that there is no such thing as an average student. In our system, we empower students to utilize critical thinking skills, problem-solving strategies, and collaborate with peers to construct solutions for real-world applications. Designing such a system starts with trust, a commitment to excellence, and caring about stakeholders as individuals. It continues with the creation of boundaries that allow for flexibility, innovation, and creativity, all the while ensuring the focus remains on the objective of academic excellence.

    The priority must be to create a true environment of collaboration between all stakeholders but most importantly between a facilitator and their students. It is imperative that students' own voices are integrated into everyday learning experiences in order to find the joy in learning. Finally, the system must produce results to build credibility and sustainability.

    I am excited to join AFIA for the challenge of being truly innovative and the opportunity to increase the capacity for human greatness. Together, we will ban the average in education!
