PA Educational Leadership Summit

co-sponsored by PASA and the Pennsylvania Principals Association

a three-day event providing an excellent opportunity for school district administrative teams and instructional leaders to learn, share and plan together

Dr. Ruby K. Payne
Dr. Payne is the authority on working across economic classes to create sustainable communities where everyone can live well. As a former high school teacher and principal, she understands the unique challenges facing schools and com-munities around the country. After changing the conversation in education to focus on poverty, Dr. Payne’s work expanded into social services, criminal justice, healthcare, the workplace and emotional poverty. Two recent publications won Independent Publisher Book Awards: Emotional Poverty in All Demographics and Before You Quit Teaching. She has written or co-authored many other books, including Bridges Out of Poverty. In addition, her book, A Framework for Understanding Poverty, has sold 1.8 million copies and continues to help people achieve success. 

Muriel Summers
For more than two decades, Muriel Summers was at the helm of A.B. Combs Elementary, a highly diverse school featured across the world for its innovations in leadership. It carries the honor of being the world’s first Leader in Me school, with Muriel as co-author of the book by the same name. Currently, 5,000 schools in over 50 countries are replicating and building upon Muriel and her staff’s leadership model, which sees all adults—and ALL students—as leaders. Following Muriel’s recent retirement from Wake County Public Schools, she joined FranklinCovey Education as its lead Global Ambassador, presenting at international, national, state and local educational conferences on topics such as: Reinventing Leadership One Teacher, One Student at a Time; Making a Difference in Students’ Social-Emotional Lives; and Empowering Students and Teachers from the Inside Out.
