National Summit for Principal Supervisors
Airick Journey (A.J) Crabill
American Education Reform Advocate
Raised in and out of foster care from birth until high school, AJ bounced around enough to have attended 11 schools prior to graduation. He attended urban, suburban and rural schools; private, public, and parochial schools; lived with white families and families of color; lived in racist communities and inclusive communities; experienced loving homes and homelessness.
Guided by the idea that student outcomes don’t change until
adult behaviors change and drawing on his intimate familiarity with the triumphs and terrors of America’s safety nets for children, AJ has devoted much of his life to advocating for the well-being of our nation’s most vulnerable youth.
AJ currently serves as Conservator at DeSoto, Texas Independent School District; Education Faculty at the Leadership Institute of Nevada in Las Vegas; Director of Governance at the Council for the Great City Schools in Washington, DC; and has served as Board Chair for the Kansas City Public Schools and Deputy Commissioner of Education for the State of Texas.
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what others say!
The Principal Summit is a great conference! I have been attending since it started in 2016 and look forward to it every year!
Finally a one stop place where you can gather good information and meet the great people who are implementing the work!
One of the best conference I have ever attended. Thanks to this conference I was able to get on the right path to becoming a principal supervisor
I was luck enough to get selected to become a presenter and was blown away by the amount of people seeking to learn and grow!
Love coming to South Florida and away from the cold, the perfect weather and great connections I get to make here are second to none.
A one of a kind conference, I wish we would have learned about it sooner. Looking forward to coming every year from now on.
Let’s start a conversation
