Founder, Trainer &
on best practices of what should be done now, leading up to, and
through school reopening.
Speaking with leaders across the country helped me to think about
circumstances that my team might not have considered.
In these unprecedented times, it's nice to know that I have a community
outside of my own four walls that shares my team's values when thinking
about how to return to school safely and effectively.
