This week's shout out goes to Jerry Perdue! Jerry has such a natural ability to see students for who they are, even virtually! He has built such strong connections with his students and it is very apparent in his classroom that students feel seen and heard. I love his strategy for engagement and how he calls on students so personally and authentically! To top it off, he is a true embodiment of resilience. Kudos Jerr!


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.
