“This was the most well-timed, streamlined, helpful PD I've had as an administrator. I am a VP in my 5th year of administration, with a principalship on the horizon. My confidence to lead a building and fellow educators grew exponentially through this Fellowship! I have a simple framework, Big Ideas, and levers to help me take simple, small actions and make things happen! I've gotten WAY more out of this experience than I hoped for."
