THANK YOU @HoldsworthCentr for the quality of content you have provided us this year in the Collaborative and the connections you have helped us build with leaders outside of education. It will make public schools even better!

I value my participation in the @HoldsworthCentr Superintendent Program. As the lead teacher in SAISD, I am always learning new strategies to better support learning in our schools. #SAISDFamilia #OurKidsAreWorthIt

Proud to call myself an alum of The Holdsworth Center’s Campus Leadership Program. This was such a formative and eye-opening experience. Can’t wait to continue the work even after this is done. There’s still so much to do for public education.
