Kurt, I see your name in the participant list. So glad you are here!
Kristi Wilson

One of the struggles leaders might be having is finding the courage to hold these conversations with staff… so important to keep the momentum going and not lose the opportunity these crisis has provided to reimagine
Kristi Wilson
59:25
I am gonna answer that in a minute!
Kurt Stumpf

Hi Deb!
Susan Enfield
01:07:49
Go Deb!
James Harvey
01:07:55
In awe of all of you. Wonderful presentations. Thanks. How do we make sure we don’t return to “normal”? As Gloria Billings points out, “normal” is where the problems were.
Susan Enfield
01:08:27
That is the question, Jim. I will be honest, I am having a difficult time finding the time and mental space to engage in long-term strategic thinking.
James Harvey
01:09:09
Gloria Ladsen Billings is correct name I think. Memory failing!
Susan Enfield
01:09:21
You are right, Jim.
Valerie Truesdale
01:11:03
How are we testing and for what purpose? Assessment should be tied to changes in adult behaviors to stretch learners. Make tests meaningful and use them appropriately.
Susan Enfield
01:11:10
And leader behaviors!
Kristi Wilson
01:13:02
A colleague of mine says I want students enrolled, employed or enlisted

What do we expect of a successful graduate?

Competencies live in action
Susan Enfield
01:14:32
Mike McCormick Super in Val Verde is a great leader to learn from.
Kristi Wilson
01:17:37
Yea that word courage comes up a lot M
Kristi Wilson
01:18:45
Love signature experiences
James Harvey
01:19:47
I would hope the portrait of a graduate would include their personal qualities, honesty, commitment to their communities. We need graduates who vote, participate in their communities, and won’t be conned by the disinformation that is rive in social media. We don’t want graduates who think it’s OK to storm the U.S. Capitol.

Thank you Susan, Marlon and Kristi. I appreciate your reflections and sharing today. You've given me a lot to reflect on. Gotta run to next meeting. I appreciate you all!

James Harvey

Agree Susan. Actually think we overlook extracurriculars in developing students’ talents. Newspapers, drama, music, yearbook, athletics — these are things that make school very meaningful for so many students.
James Harvey
01:23:20
I must go. Thank you Susan, Marlon, and Kristi — wonderful presentations!
Susan Enfield
01:23:34
I had many of my journalism students tell me that my class was why they came to school. So I used that as leverage to come for all their classes!
Kristi Wilson
01:25:22
Do you have the courage to ask the hard questions
Susan Enfield
01:32:01
