Renew Your Passion

Shelley WilleBalancing multiple roles and constituencies is an around-the-clock job for heads. The demands of running a school leave little time for much needed academic renewal and discussion and few chances for meaningful reflection and personal development. This unique opportunity to spend two weeks with fellow heads will allow you return to your school with solution-focused academic research, renewed vision and revitalized passion for education and leadership. You owe it to yourself and your school to apply.
