A talk about Success from a successful person who had trouble finding it as a student…

Relationships form an essential foundation for a caring, vibrant and innovative school community. In order to best support our students’ social, emotional and academic growth, we must challenge ourselves to expand our definition of success to encompass a wider range of skill sets and abilities. Each student has a unique story and it is our responsibility to learn these stories. We must create an environment that supports and celebrates the diversity of all students. As a secondary Vice Principal in the Richmond school district, I am privileged to work alongside colleagues, students and families to do just that.
