Shout out to all of you for working so hard to live out our vision of creating closeness to students and their families. I have seen you all use your networks to bring translators to parent teacher conferences, call home to parents after school, and plan lessons so responsively. Kudos!


We are 27 change makers with a lot more in common than we think. Our vision is to create closeness and connectivity with one another, our students, and their families to solve problems and create action.
