What People Are Saying

Testimonials

GLISI helped our district to define competencies for principals and assistant principals. They helped us critique our own practice, improving the quality of feedback to teachers. It’s making a difference in the classroom.

- Dr. April Howard, Superintendent , Jackson County School System

GLISI conducted an audit of our principal hiring and placement then delivered an insightful report including recommendations for how we could improve.

- Dr. Glenn Pethel, Assistant Superintendent, Leadership Development , Gwinnett County Public Schools

We have had many strategic plans, but for the first time, our school plans are connected to the district plan and we have a process for monitoring implementation. GLISI was by our side every step of the way.

- Dr. Angela Pringle, Regional Superintendent , DeKalb County School District

I knew I was a good teacher, but attending Base Camp and Leadership Summit and having the opportunity to work side-by-side with key leaders (in breakout sessions) was critical in transforming my perspective on the change process and its possibilities. I understand now that the process is bigger than me and my classroom and that being a part of it is key to ensuring that my school and my community are places of excellence.

- Carrie Staines, Teacher, Druid Hills High School , DeKalb County School District
