Thank you for speaking with Ryan Fellows, the Partner Principals and the teacher leaders earlier this month at our Summer Institute. Your insights, candor, and stories were of great value to all the aspiring leaders. Your talk helped them see the larger context of their work. You were amazing – so spot on! The fellows were talking about their night with you all day [the next day]. Thank you so very much!

I wanted to thank you personally for your hard work over the last 20 years on behalf of America’s children. Without the courage from individuals like yourself, I cringe at where we might still be on this journey to turn things around in public education. The battle is not over to provide every parent in America more than one quality choice and I hope you will not go far in supporting this effort.
