Thank you is simply not enough.

Cohort 4 makes 165 administrators at Special School District of St. Louis County Dare to Lead™ trained by me.

There are no adequate words for how much this work with SSD has meant to me.

There are no adequate words for how much this particular group of people has left me in total awe. From day one to day three, I think we are all different people – changed from doing the hard courage work, turning back to ourselves, and turning toward one another to heal.

I am so, so, so damn proud of us.

Thank you is simply not enough.

Now go walk it out and also rest during your breaks, and we will get back to it in 2024. ?
