“Arrow is the kind of professional development that all professional development really should be – personal development. As a teacher and leader, the person I am matters more than the techniques I have or the books I’ve read. It’s nice to go to a ‘PD’ and feel changed, rather than just temporarily enlightened.”
“I thought I was coming to a professional development program, however it is so much more than that. This program has the potential to change the trajectory of your life.”
“Arrow Leadership is a pivotal experience. It asks for the participant’s courage. Courage to scale heights and plumb depths of character rarely traversed in lives harried along in the currents of life.”
“Over the past 12 years of leadership and over 20 years of teaching, the Arrow Leadership program has been by far the most insightful and has made the greatest impact for positive change.”
