Sophia Trinh, Watercolor Painting

Wednesday Evening, November 3, 6:00 - 7:30 pm

Sophia Trinh 1

Join us for an evening focused on self-care, conversation, and art! We are thrilled to welcome Sophia Trinh, a watercolor artist from Seattle who started painting at the age of four while attending Seattle Waldorf School. In kindergarten, Sophia was introduced to the primary colors through wet-on-wet painting which focuses on the experience of colors rather than form. It was through these early experiences of painting that she developed a love for watercolors. Sophia uses art as a tool to engage others and communicate ideas and she is thrilled to work with leaders to talk more about how we play and learn, manage emotions and feelings, and take this learning into our daily lives. 

Principal Voices on Race and Equity

Thursday Morning, November 4, 7:30-9:30 am

Dr. Kimbrelle Barbosa Lewis, a school administrator in Tennessee, NAESP past president, and chair of the NAESP National Taskforce on Race and Equity, will lead a panel discussion with other task force members. 
This taskforce was formed to help advise NAESP on issues related to racial equity in school communities, reveal schools’ common challenges and solutions, and support a peer-to-peer network of support for school leaders. The taskforce focuses on collecting information related to racial equity in schools, elevating relevant research, and determining how best NAESP can provide support to principals around these issues. Come join this discussion to learn more and share your thoughts with taskforce members, which will include:

  • Dr. Kimbrelle Barbosa Lewis, Principal, Cordova Elementary School, Cordova, TN
  • Dr. Cynthia J. Hammond, Principal, Westside Elementary, Houston County Schools, Perry, GA
