“Thanks for sending me someone that cares more about the process and my school, rather than living off of their past accomplishments.”
“Kim did a fantastic job of connecting with our team as soon as she walked in the room. She listened and responded authentically to the concerns for our specific site. She helped us establish our first steps and goals for our PLC at our site. I look forward to working with her again in the next few months.”
