Principals and UCLA

July 3, 2018

For 12 years, I've done the closing keynote for ACSA's Summer Institute for New and Aspiring Principals.   It's my favorite job of the year and a refreshing way to get energized about the work I've loved so much for so long.  The audience is a group of brand new site leaders who are looking forward to a first opportunity to lead a culture on their terms.  It is a huge responsibility and kudos to them for coming to the conference and investing in their own growth. I've heard year after year, attendees leave energized and better prepared . . . good, right?


My hope for them is to understand that organizational culture is intentional and the leader drives the conversation. I want them to leave UCLA with a tug on their heart strings that pulls them closer to finding their moral purpose in education.  How Many Wins is a mindset that I want to move leaders to look for ways to go from concept to action with strategies that are systemic and permanent.  Hopefully, I can inspire them to partner with me to change the world they live in with a message of HOPE, LOVE, and PERSEVERANCE.  This year's group was another example of California's future being bright.
