Before Reach, I thought I knew all about teaching! However, Reach has challenged me to become a better educator by shifting my views on what high-quality education looks like for my students.
The Reach Instructional Leadership Academy has provided me with invaluable experience and support, for which I will always be grateful.
I wish for all Bay Area administrative and teacher leaders the opportunity to be part of a cohort of educators such as the ones I've had the joy to learn with this last year. That, together with the incredibly caring, knowledgeable, and sweetly demanding faculty of Reach, have made finally finishing my Masters degree a rewarding reality. I am especially grateful for the way I was pushed out of my comfort zone and supported in developing skills in areas of academic collaboration and intervention for our most struggling students.”
I've been an educator for 25 years but I feel like I am setting out on a new journey, both professionally and personally. I am grateful for the leadership skills that I have gained through the Reach ILA program. I am even more thankful for the relationships that I have developed with the Reach faculty and my cohort members.
