"Leaders are servants to those they lead. Let’s work together to leverage our leadership skills to prioritize learning experiences that will have the biggest impact for students."
Everyone has strengths and everyone has something they need to work on. Having support for both gives you the lift you need to grow. That's because we are stronger and smarter together.
Whether Julie is working closely with students, parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, or community members, she knows that the key to doing good work together is building strong, trusting relationships. Julie believes we are all leaders - both students and adults. She explains that, "working together is about leveraging our leadership skills to make the biggest impact on learning and growing new understandings." Julie creates a learning environment where everyone has time to think, collaborate, try new things, and reflect in order to figure out the best ways to maximize learning for everyone.
