LLP Testimonials


“The LLP program prepared me for life as an administrator in ways I could never have imagined.  The readings and assignments stimulated growth in the depth and complexity of my thinking about schools and the critical function they serve.  The relationships that developed within the cohort and with the faculty provide a professional network of new and experienced school administrators.  This program broadens your thinking and sharpens your focus.”

Dan Rubin, Director of Guidance
Canton, MA / LLP Class of 2007

“The LLP program provides just enough theory along with a lot of practical knowledge and experience.  The hands-on usefulness of all assignments as well as the student-centered classroom experience provided by knowledgeable, talented, experienced and motivated instructors made me excited about becoming a school leader.  I especially appreciated the emphasis on self-knowledge and getting to know our own strengths and weaknesses.  The program prepared me to successfully face and work through the challenges involved in my new role.”

Deborah Gray, Assistant Headmaster
Austin Preparatory School, Reading, MA / LLP Class of 2006

“The LLP program was led by outstanding instructors who incorporated real life situations and skills into their curriculum.  The material was relevant and directly applicable to jobs in administration and included best practices.  Although fast paced and challenging, the work was exciting, prepared you for state certification, and helped you become a better educator with every meeting and assignment.”

Drew Weymouth, Assistant Principal
Wachusett Regional High School, Holden, MA / LLP Class of 2009

“The standards-based curriculum, data-driven research, and best practices that are the foundation of LLP truly prepared me for the challenges of being a principal.  Equally important was direct access to a network of instructors who were respected, veteran MA administrators and relationships with cohort member who became trusted colleagues and good friends.  LLP is more than a program; it’s the education and support that every new administrator needs that makes all the difference.”

Kerry Burke, Principal
Curriculum Director, Lee MA / LLP Class of 2006

“I feel blessed to have had you as my teachers, mentors and guides. I learned so much and was pushed out of my comfort zone a good many times. I am deeply appreciative of what you have taught me and now, in the words of John D’Auria, I will “go and minister (rabbi).”
