A couple weeks ago, Kari applied to be an Associate Principal / Dean for the largest school district in our state.
She applied on the down-low, ignored most people's advice and went to her in-person interview rocking adidas wedges and kbroox fashion. She ignored dropping obvious industry buzz words and talking points, and responded as herself, with her values.
This would be her first time stepping out of special education to represent the larger student population... and she apparently nailed the interview. She went in as the full kbroox and got the exact placement that she was hoping for.
Before she was even offered the position, I was proud as shit at the way she presented herself, but I'm even more proud now.
