Lessons Learned by Visiting Our Nation’s Schools
One of the signature initiatives that Gregg Wieczorek, NASSP’s Immediate Past President, undertook during his term was to visit schools in all 50 states. He called it “one of the best experiences of my professional career.” Highlights from those visits are now available in a new report titled “Leading Forward: Ideas from the Listening and Learning Tour.”
The next generation of leaders need to learn from our experiences.
When it comes to student leadership, what wisdom can you share to help other advisers and student leaders? Given the environment we’re in today, those of us who have learned lessons cannot afford NOT to share them. The next generation of leaders need to hear from us—and presenting at a workshop during our LEAD Spark conference in January is the perfect opportunity.
