DEAR DORRIE: The Legacy of Dean Dorrie Fontaine

There's a metaphor in Fontaine's steadfast presence in the 6 a.m. meditation class she's attended for more than a decade: Be the change you wish to see in the world, perhaps. Show, don't tell. Or maybe: Lead by example. The weekly devotion also reflects every interwoven priority Fontaine's had for the School during her more-than-a-decade-long tenure: Show up. Be kind. Embrace resilience.
