My greatest and most humbling experience with working on the board is to completely embrace the importance of collaboration. Each voice represents a resounding and vitally important component of the how and the what to create new ideas and to think forward to continually strive for the best education possible. It is not about agreeing with each other. It is about listening from all points of view to understand at a greater level.
