  • The Kettering-Moraine Board of Education has been practicing the "governance model" for about one year. During our training and orientation I have had the opportunity to work extensively with Carolyn Bailey. She has a tremendous grasp of the issues relating to board governance/leadership and quality management. Carolyn is an enthusiastic and effective teacher and has a keen ability to apply theory and practical application, which is very meaningful and useful. If you are interested in improving your effectiveness as a board member, staff or executive, Carolyn' s consultations and seminars are the groundwork for tremendous change and improvement in your leadership and management skills.
