TLD gave me an opportunity to pause and reflect on my leadership strengths and underdeveloped areas. The Behavior Event Interview (BEI) was a game changer for me as an instructional leader. The tool was used to evaluate my baseline leadership skills and provide a guide on professional growth! It has helped create high-growth in my school.

This year, my school made notable gains in student achievement. I highly attribute this success to the guided review and reflection activities of my Action Plan development along with the ongoing support of my Coach.
