Join the California Center for School Climate for the second Virtual Learning Session, Working Collectively to Generate and Prioritize Ideas.
Participants will learn how to collaborate together to identify priorities and goals. This involves brainstorming and designing actions, services, and programs that interrupt inequitable system conditions and create opportunities for young people, families, and communities to thrive.
Session Two Presenter:
Kristin Sobilo currently serves her community as an elementary principal in rural Humboldt County on the far northern California coast. A dynamic, bilingual, and passionate educational leader, Kristin puts inclusivity into practice by meeting and welcoming children, families, and educators where they are. Kristin builds bridges because she genuinely values the efforts and voice of each stakeholder and engages the diverse community she and her team serve. With 25 years of experience in education, from teaching English to middle schoolers, coaching teachers on effective instruction, facilitating and implementing both Restorative Justice and Arts Integration grants, and leading through example, Kristin embraces and models curiosity, learning, and growing every day. Kristin and her husband Mike enjoy visiting with their adult children, traveling, and a good game of Scrabble.
