Our chat will focus on the idea that we can lead and make positive change from any position in our school systems. Leadership is not about a title, it is a way of thinking and acting.

    Our culture is one that is based on trust and relationships. I attribute this to the teachers and admin team building trust. It led us to every teacher participating in Learning Walks (teachers visiting teachers)! Best PD ever. #LeadLap
