I was reflecting on all the ways that Tide Risers shaped me recently and I have to say that as much as I love schools and am interested in school leadership, I've also discovered how passionate I am, specifically, about female leadership. Did you know that women make up 70% of the work force in schools, but only 30% of the leadership? It's so clear to me that my interests hue more closely to advocating for and supporting other women who want to do this work too. Tide Risers helped me carve space in my life for that interest. Ever grateful for that.
