“It lit a new fire under me as motivation to further advocate for change at my school and was so affirming and validating for all of the things I’ve been feeling and thinking about how we’re doing intervention terribly this year. It left me with concrete info and data to share with leadership to support the argument I’ve been making and wanting to take higher up.”
