Melanie Vrba

Melanie has significant experience with Strategic Planning, strategic thinking, and generative conversations about how we can work together to move education forward. She finds this work most exciting when we can gather diverse perspectives around a table and roll up our sleeves to see what is possible when we create something new together. Some particular areas of passionate interest for Melanie include technology innovations, belonging work, community well-being, and creative re-imagining. Throughout her time as an educator, Melanie has been blessed to have had many opportunities to learn from others and to work with incredible mentors.
