The social identity wheel was a valuable activity [which] offered insight and perspective into privilege in regards to our student population, as well as what we all prioritize in various ways, based on experiences and backgrounds.

“[He] knows that transformation of the magnitude required demands more than professional development and instructional reform.  He recognizes that this transformation demands courageously addressing the root of the word ‘administer’: to minister service. The service required involves going beyond the boundaries of school buildings and the district office by reaching out to students and their families in their home environments, demonstrating a fearless commitment to connect with their lives in order to engage them.  [He] garners the support needed for this service to bear fruit through community advocacy.”
