What People Think…

This model has totally changed how I do things in my school…especially the way I use power more consciously. For me, it’s so important to do no harm.  And while I understand my role as a Latino leader in my school – I am learning from the PDA, the model, and from consultation with The Sum how my power and my privilege across many sociocultural differences can be used with more awareness, effectiveness, and care in my relationships to our school secretary, our custodian, the teachers, parents and, of course, the students.” 

Guillermo Medina,
Principal, Columbine Elementary, Boulder Valley School District, Boulder, Colorado

“As a person who is always engaged in inclusion work, whether it be in my job or in my life; sometimes we need to be reminded to take care of ourselves. This survey helped me to refocus on how I give of myself. I don’t have to give myself away. I was able to take a breath for my sake! Still carrying my torch!”
