Welcome Message from the Executive Director

Dear Colleagues:

The end of the school year is near, and 2015-2016 is flying by. I hope everyone will have a smooth end of school. This is the time of year when so much is expected and workload is pushed to the limit. Breathe and try to stay relaxed during May madness!

The Spring Heads’ Institute in Siem Reap, Cambodia, will have more than 40 school leaders in attendance, which is one of the largest retreats to date! We have steadily increased participation over years and hope that next year will be even better. Jefferson Cann is the retreat facilitator, and he aims to tap into and develop inner resources and self-confidence. We look forward to working with him to increase our personal effectiveness.
