I’m so glad to get out of my building to come to these meetings!
It’s so helpful to learn more about what other schools are working on. Hearing anecdotes from other directors makes me believe that moving my school toward a more collaborative culture is possible.
It’s really beneficial to have a space to discuss pertinent issues and hot topics with fellow colleagues.
