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.
And the thing about Leneita…you can be her friend, too! Find her on Facebook & Twitter – or just register for SYMC this year. (Time is ticking on the discounted offer!)
