Her Story - Building a Village
Sidra Dudley, principal of 156th Street Elementary School in Gardena, California, has dedicated her work to make school a second home for students. And she’s not alone. Her success is a testament to the tireless effort she has invested to build a strong community of teachers, students, and parents, where all have a voice and all are willing to lend a helping hand.

These efforts carried the school through the pandemic and have readied the community to return to campus this spring.
