He is enrolled in the Friends Council on Education Leadership Institute, where he will engage in a two-year action research leadership project. “My goal is to become the head of a Friends School. I see an education through Penn’s independent school leadership program as an amazing opportunity to reflect and challenge myself. As a Quaker, I am committed to the conflict resolution and decision making processes that guide not just Friends Schools but many independent schools. I feel it necessary to be part of a program that understands these challenges and processes. More than anything, I desire to be a reflective leader that hears all, fosters teachers’ passions, and places the students first,” says Herbst.
