As the school year comes to an end and you reflect upon all that you have done, remember that you may never know how many lives you have touched and the difference you have made for others - for students, families, colleagues, partners, and friends. As we sign off for the summer, we hope you will take some time to think about those who have inspired you and made a real difference in your life.
We would like to share a story about someone who has touched many lives over the years and inspires our work at the Center for Collaborative Education. Meg Anderson joined CCE in 2003 as a leader of our Principal Residency Network. At CCE, she coached countless principals and school and teacher leaders, sharing the fundamentals of leadership and instilling the importance of social justice, collaboration, and continuous improvement.
Meg has also been an inspiration and guiding mentor for our entire staff at CCE, inspiring us to keep pushing for opportunity and equity for each and every student in our work. "Equity is always front and center in her mind," recalls Dan French, Executive Director, "Meg was the voice whispering in my ear saying, Remember process and inclusion - make sure that all voices are heard." In September, Meg will be retiring from CCE but her impact will continue on in the lives she has touched. Thank you, Meg, for showing us what it means to be a true collaborator!
