“Being an educator requires more than knowing the content you are to teach.  You need a heart for people and a love of kids.”

Every decision made for schools should be anchored in the question; “What is best for the students we serve?”

“If this job were easy, more people would do it.  But it is not.  It is something you must work at daily because the lives of the young people you serve are depending on you. Literally!”



Seeking to understand the individual needs and goals of the organization. 


Engaging in honest and transparent dialogue about organization systems and structures.



Negotiating levels of change with the organization that focus on shifting to responsive, equitable practices.



Sharing best practices as organizations seek to disrupt and transform the current status quo.


Embrace diversity and uniqueness of each organization.
