ALL OF THESE 💗 But especially number 3, number 6 and number 9. In that order.


We kicked off our Sept with this mantra and a question to all staff: 'No burnout. Ever. What do we need to change?' Openness and honesty is crucial. No elephants! For us it's about creating and maintaining systems that allow leaders to lead, teachers to teach, kids to learn.
