Profile Information

Tell our School Leadership 2.0 community a little bit about yourself. Feel free to post your email address and website. Also feel free to list your areas of interest. This will help other members dialogue with you.
I'm a school climate and SEL consultant, retired school administrator, past ED of the International Alliance for Invitational Education, and Co-Founder of the LI SEL Forum. My goal is to help schools learn how starting with a shared mindset and adult communication skills for all school staff is the best way to ensure that your school climate initiatives are successful and sustainable. No SEL or discipline program will produce the desired results unless the adults in a school know how to listen and communicate without blame or judgment. Contact me at joan@joanfretz.com.
