St. Frances of Rome Catholic School, Azusa

Onward Leaders has opened up many doors for me. It has allowed me to feel confident in a role that can be overwhelming. The on the job training has provided a strong foundation from which to lead and inspire. In my year of residency, I grew professionally and personally. Having a cohort to work with made it easy to obtain support and knowledge.  We learned the theories that support strong leadership, collaborated with wonderful leaders, and spent time learning the job from the inside out. My year as an Onward Leader was unforgettable and so beneficial. I am blessed to have worked alongside so many wonderful leaders who helped shape the administrator I have become. I am very grateful to be working with such a wonderful school community like St. Frances of Rome in Azusa.
