I am pleased to work with my friend and colleague Bill Brennan on the creation of this new resource for educational leaders. After a career of 34 years in public education (21 as principal of a middle school and a high school), my "retirement" has really been a "resetting" of my life. I greatly enjoy my work as a consultant, especially helping and mentoring new school leaders.
