A Crucial Early Mistake
Organizationally, we are still learning about the best ways to support our teachers. Personally, it’s about being aware of my own errors and knowing that there’s always a what’s next.
This work feeds my heart. It means so much to me when people we work with talk about the changes they’ve made.
