Principal Michelle Burget and English Teacher Stephanie Russell Present at AMLE

Principal Michelle Burget and English Teacher Stephanie Russell were selected to present at the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE) Conference in Nashville in November 2019. They led a workshop entitled “The ‘Power of Yes:’ Principal and Teacher Leadership That Inspires Student Voice.”

This workshop revealed how inspiring student voice can profoundly reshape school culture. Participants engaged in discourse around the “why” of student-led civic engagement, and participated in hands-on activities that enabled them to philosophically and practically see the “Power of Yes” when it comes to the leadership mindset it takes to foster a school culture that puts students at the forefront of leadership for learning and social change.
