I was only CL for 4 years, one of which was a sabbatical. And that was near the end of my career. So I had a long view of that role and thought long and hard about how to build a chapter in a school with a domineering my way or highway, though not abusive, principal. And also as a CL who is critical, yet often dependent, on the union hierarchy. Yelena will talk about working with them from that perspective, especially since she is one of the few, if any, opposition people who has a part-time staff position at the Brooklyn Office.
I think I did a lot of interesting and innovative things as CL - which I will share on Thursday. I hope there is room as the response had been large. If you are a current or former CL come on down and provide support for these new CLs who have taken on quite a task.
