Flourishing Together

by Lynn E. Swaner & Andy Wolfe

An ideal resource for professional development and strategic planning, Flourishing Together adheres to the principle that “anything that is worth building cannot be built alone.” Thus, the vision for flourishing is one in which the school community is understood as an interconnected ecosystem where “each one’s flourishing is dependent on their flourishing together.” Accordingly, teachers and administrators will be inspired and equipped to reshape their schools as places where they—alongside their students—can flourish together in a community of abundant life.
