Congratulations to Bobbie Laur, Division of Innovation and Applied Research, who was recently named to the Daily Record’s VIP List of Professionals in Maryland under the Age of 40! Bobbie is an important part of the team that plans and executes the Signature Forums and has been a tremendous support to my office. I was proud to nominate her for this prestigious award!
In the past week, I have had the opportunity to address two incredible groups on the important topic of leadership. The first was at the Aspiring Leaders Program sponsored by the Department of Rehabilitative Services (DORS) and the second was at the Creative Leadership Institute sponsored by the Department of Jewish Studies here at Towson University.The title of the talk was “Why Should Anyone Be Led By You?” and includes a lot of leadership stories from my career in education, as well as a short video. I love speaking on this topic because good leadership is so essential to good schools.
Last week I met with representatives from the Maryland State Department of Education, the Towson Childcare Center and the College of Education to discuss how Towson can support the coming demand for Early Childhood teachers and seats.
