President Kristie LongWhat a momentous time to be in education. The current state of education reminds me of a quote by John Maxwell, “Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.” As a 26-year veteran educator from Effingham County, Georgia, I have witnessed many changes and experienced the inevitable growing pains that accompany school improvement. As the 2017-2018 President for SSTAGE, I hope to bring my knowledge and leadership experiences to the SSTAGE team to promote the association’s mission of providing leadership through collaboration, learning and advocacy to enhance educators effectiveness and student success.

With the landscape of education rapidly changing, the SSTAGE Board of Directors and I invite you to join us as we ALL traverse this new educational terrain, seizing every opportunity for professional learning and growth. SSTAGE is committed to nurturing and growing the landscape for successful RTI/MTSS implementations across the state of Georgia. With your participation, we can achieve this goal.

With warmest regards,

Kristie Long
SSTAGE President
