Leading the Way

Two of our staff members, Erica Sherlock, E1 Head Teacher and Middle School Grade Level Head, and Nina Jacobi, E3 Head Teacher and ¬†Elementary Grade Level Head, recently attended the 2013 ACSD Conference on Educational Leadership held here in Las Vegas, Nevada. They attended expert-led sessions such as “College and Career Readiness,” “Passion-Driven Leadership,” and “Effective Supervision,” and came away inspired with fresh ideas and armed with powerful new information.

In a speech by acclaimed educator and author Salome Thomas-EL, they learned about the “immortality of influence.” Says Erica, “It was a great speech about teacher passion and its endless influence. I learned to not ask for a lighter load, but a stronger back.”

Foothills Montessori School is a private Montessori school serving families in Henderson, Las Vegas and Southern Nevada.
