Reach has been an amazing learning experience over the last two years. I discovered a new identity for myself in the world of education. Reach has supported me in becoming an instructional leader that can support a shared vision and move both students and teachers forward in their growth and personal levels of success. The use of the coaching cycle, equity lens and a focus on developing and strengthening teacher capacity have become anchors in my “toolbox” and enable me to promote and support instructional shifts. I’m very fortunate to be part of this wonderful and supportive program.
