Michele Walker: The Flexibility To Be "Whatever We Need To Be"

Voice: Leader

Region: San Diego Region

Organization: El Rancho Charter School

"It's the opportunity and flexibility to be whatever we want to be," says Michele Walker, Principal of El Rancho Charter School. "We create programs, we are constantly having conversations about 'how can we meet the needs of our students?' and then we actually DO IT." Not just talk, but action.

Michele and her school want to instill in their kids how to be life-long learners. "I love when parents and students come back to us and say 'you know what, what we learned at El Rancho has created these opportunities for us."
