DISTRICT LEADER COUNCIL CHAIR
Director of Social Emotional Learning
Washington School District
Characterplus District leaders serve an important role in the school community. As individuals who champion character education, district leaders are committed to learning evidence-based practices and processes that address the character, social, and emotional needs of students in classrooms and schools.
District leaders have the most impact when they work closely with district administrators to implement foundational practices as part of school improvement efforts and monitor outcomes. Character education is more important than ever. District leaders serve as conduits between districts and the collaborative work happening in the region.
