Sharing the Well: NAIS names MVPS as one of 10 most innovative schools

Although I am dreadfully late in writing this post, my excitement has not waned in what I am sharing! I am blessed and privileged to call Mount Vernon Presbyterian School my home away from home. My colleagues– my tribe– continue to inspire and challenge me every day.

So I was so proud to document the #speedinnovation session that my partners Brett Jacobsen (Head of School) and Bo Adams (Chief Learning and Innovation Officer) hosted at the annual NAIS conference in Baltimore, MD.

The Storify linked here shares the play-by-play of the sessions.

What was amazing? The energy and excitement that both Brett and Bo exuded session after session.

What was gratifying? The crowd around the table shifting in for a closer look each time they presented.

What was not surprising? The fact that Brett and Bo exemplified one of our school norms, Share the Well. We won’t rest with keeping our innovative practices to ourselves. Just as we are committed to influencing this generation of students whom we have in our school community, we are also committed to influencing and inspiring schools and organizations everywhere to embrace innovation, challenge assumptions, and fail up along the way.
