It's Leap Day!

It's been a while since I last blogged, things have been busy around here. But since it is leap day, and I have “extra” time, I thought I'd blog.

Last Wednesday, I headed out to San Francisco for the NAIS conference. I attended several workshops, one in particular on planning major anniversaries in independent schools. (In case you are unaware, Crefeld turns 50 in 2020! We will celebrating the whole year long.) In addition to the workshops, I had the opportunity to listen to some dynamic keynote speakers, including Bryan Stevenson talk about his inspiring career as a criminal defense attorney working with people on death row and children who are being tried as adults. If you are looking for a great read, pick up his memoir, Just Mercy, A Story of Justice and Redemption.

While the conference was my main reason for traveling to California, the highlight of my trip was getting together with a group of Bay Area Crefelders on Wednesday night. I had the opportunity to spend the evening with alumni from the classes of 1997, 2001, 2004, and 2005. It reminded me how lucky I am to be a part of this school community and that there are Crefelders doing great things all over this country.
