While reading The Leader in Me, I found that the educators from other schools visited AB Combs School and then came back and implemented it at their own schools. One school listed was English Estates School in Florida. It took me a while to find Beth Sharpe since she was now at a new school but she was very willing to tell me how she implemented the program as a principal. Christie Dickens was the principal at Dewey Elementary in Quincy, Illinois that was also written about in the book. Christie agreed to meet me for coffee in Chicago while we were attending a conference. I also contacted Suzanne Hahn from Illinois. All of the principals took teachers to visit AB Combs School. How could I get our teachers to North Carolina. Even visiting Quincy, Illinois was a two day trip!
