The combination of intelligence, knowledge, passion, "street smarts" and dedication to the highest quality learning for faculty and students is found in very few educators. Kim Bane is one of these. Her effectiveness in connecting with people and working inside and for systems for sustained improvements in organizational climate and student learning are thrillingly exceptional.

"I have worked in hundreds of school districts in the U.S. and around the globe and without a doubt, what stands out to me most about Ms. Bane is that she easily falls in the top 2% of international-school administrators I have ever come across."
Dr. Gini Rojas
"Kim Bane is a thoughtful, forward-thinking educator and leader. While school leaders can easily get caught in the minute-by-minute, day-to-day reactionary aspect of running busy systems, Kim is different. She continually takes on a calm, reflective stance -- coming back to the big picture as both a launchpad for meaningful actions and as an anchor for ongoing reflection. Kim understands group dynamics, the learning needs of professionals, and figures out ways to build capacity in educators to move closer to their goals. Kim will be a valuable thought partner on so many levels for those schools fortunate enough to collaborate with her."

"Courage comes to my mind with Kim's work... she forged the Office of Teaching and Learning, she directed strategic planning, she worked with commitment and vision on the Teaching and Learning Committee...the way we did professional development and professional learning lacked the kind of strength of vision and focus and purpose that we take for granted today...to make that happen took a lot of work, it also takes a lot of courage and vision and Kim brought that. We are all the beneficiaries of her work...Kim inspires others to learn. She does that in many different ways. She lives that part of our mission by the wisdom that she has, she inspires others by the questions she asks and with how generous she is with what she has learned. While Kim will be missed, her fingerprints, her blueprints are all over this place. We are going to continue to feel her presence here."
