On Friday, February 25th FirstLine Schools presented our annual Big Chief Awards. Since 2015 we have celebrated staff members who live out the FirstLine commitments and best reflect them in their daily service to their school communities. Each year we open nominations to our staff and this year we had over 100 nominations. The prior year’s Big Chief winners gather at a dinner to select the next group of Big Chiefs.
Yes, we have shared curriculum but I have room to bring the curriculum to life in ways that are important to me.

I have access to leaders who know what they want to see in the classrooms and know how to coach teachers to succeed when changes are needed.

I have been at FirstLine from the beginning, the work we do here is what makes me stay. I utilize my historical context to help. I have grown with the organization but there is still a foundation of why we do this work that should never change.
