In this woman, there is no guile. (Unless you consider those who would dismiss kids who are poor, needy, rough-around-the-edges, and from the ‘hood.) Now THAT will raise the lioness in Leneita Fix.
A true confession – I didn’t actually get to know Leneita during SYMC. I don’t recall how I came across Leneita’s blog – I just remember her storying ability when I read it for the first time. Leneita was running late for a plane, lost her contacts, just had one of ‘those’ days – and she wrote so well about it that I felt like I was riding shotgun through the day with her. It led to our collaboration on several projects – and, eventually, a face-to-face meeting through SYMC. She’s wise. She’s definitely an expert and passionate about students. I’m honored to be her colleague and friend.
