"Feedback doesn't work unless it goes both ways. The relationship doesn't work. I think so often we come to work and you know teachers fall into that space and administrators fall into their space and sometimes we forget to see each other as humans and that human experience is the same. It transcends whatever our titles are and whatever our roles are and if we could just sit down and do good work together and really have honest and humble conversations I think I think our world of education would be a little bit better and a little bit happier for everybody."
