“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean." Ryūnosuke Satoro

The people closest to a problem are best positioned to solve it, so leaders...let's CircleUp!


What is a Leadership Circle?

A Leadership Circle is a community of educational leaders committed to learning together and solving unique challenges. Every other week we'll gather virtually to celebrate, learn and problem-solve.


We are thinkers, dreamers, change-makers, anti-racist leaders who believe schools are uniquely positioned to change lives and communities for the better.

And we believe it all starts with the leader.



Because we are better together...

Because schools are complex (understatement!), and we need to collaborate with others facing similar circumstances.

Because many of you provide professional learning, but don't take the time for yourselves...

Because nobody has to go it alone...

Because your role is vital to the success of the school, and there is a direct correlation between your success and your students' success...

What types of topics will we cover?

  • Coaching teachers & leaders

  • Leading change (i.e. new reading initiatives)
