"As a new Special Education Coordinator at a brand new charter school, the beginning months
of school could have been overwhelming. However, my work with Hollis helped me feel prepared
to meet the challenge. Hollis is organized and knowledgeable, providing me with a clear month by
month outline of prioritized tasks as well as the tools needed to accomplish these tasks.
She collaborated with me on the areas on which our school needed to focus and provided
valuable feedback to me, as well as administration and other staff. Her support and
encouragement have been vital to me during our start-up process!"
