Have you ever been stuck in a sticky situation where you are advocating for what you believe to be right for a child (and all children) but the opinion of the campus or the district might not be caught up to what best practices would indicate?

Without knowing what recent trends, policy, and legislation have actually evolved to date, we can be left in an awkward tug-o-war of opinions, and if we are not in a position of power, we may not get much say.

We invited Dr. Leah Fabiano in for a conversation on how to best navigate these murky situations and come up with our relationships intact AND do what’s right for our students.
