What was the most influential book you read besides the Bible and why?

How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartner to persevere in school?
School doesn’t get easier. But the older you get and the more you progress, the more rewarding this all becomes. Persevering in school will teach how to carry this attribute to all aspects of your life.

If you could change anything at Geneva, what would it be?
I love Geneva. However, I would change the diversity of the student body. I know it is hard to find many people from different cultures and walks of life in Boerne. But I think part of a Christian school should be to try to introduce this education to all types of people.
