Assistant Head of School Angela Garcia was featured recently by the New England Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). At the 2018 NAIS Annual Conference in Atlanta, GA, Angela presented the workshop “A New Pipeline to Leadership” with Claire Leheny, Executive Director of the Association of Independent Schools in New England (AISNE); Rodney Glasgow, Director of the Middle School and Chief Diversity Officer at St. Andrew's Episcopal School; and Jalene Spain Thomas, Director of the Lower School at St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School. During this presentation, they discussed their two groups: Administrators of Color/DMV (Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia) and the Administrators of Color Leadership Collaborative. These groups provide professional development and fellowship for administrators of color in both New England and the Washington D.C. area, and they help administrators to reflect on their leadership and cultivate new tools.
Here, NAIS shows Angela “[talking] about how to support programming and professional development networks for administrators of color and create new pipelines to becoming heads of schools and senior administrators.” Click here to watch the video.
