When we first watched this video a couple of days ago, we knew we just NEEDED to share it here on the blog. It’s so inspirational…and so transformative. Whether you are feeling completely energized from the first week of school, or a bit overwhelmed, you need to take 7 minutes to check this out. Thanks so much to Rosa Fazio – Principal at Norma Rose Point K5 and Middle School and recent graduate of the UBC Transformative Educational Leadership Program – for her willingness to share this here. Rosa put this video together as a school opening message. Her message is indeed wonderful and encouraging, but on a deeper level it truly is an example of transformative leadership. Thanks, Rosa!
