"We think scientific literacy flows out of how many science facts can you recite rather than how was your brain wired for thinking. And it's the brain wiring that I'm more interested in rather than the facts that come out of the curriculum or the lesson plan that's been proposed."
- Neil deGrasse Tyson

"If I could only wish one thing for you as you set forth on your quest, my wish would be that you do with your life something that you love; something that incites your passion; something that in your own individual way will allow you to make a difference."  - Mr.Craig Kimball, Westlake High School English teacher, graduation 2003
