 "MCLA's Leadership Academy was a program that altered my conceptions of what educational leadership is and can become. Thought-provoking readings and assignments, collaborating with fellow educators from around the country, and learning through the arts allowed for critical conversations and deep reflection.
Exploring national educational issues and applying solutions in our own local schools made the Leadership Academy a relevant and powerful experience. It has shaped and helped me grow as a leader to find solutions in an increasingly complex and changing world."
