• Values

    Compassion. Curiosity. Inclusivity. Efficacy. Humor.

These are Re-Set School’s core values.
What are yours?

We believe a courageous, informed re-set based on your core values will bring greater vitality, relevance and integrity to your school community.

We have faith in our capacity as educators to successfully address some of Education’s (and the world’s) biggest challenges. Staying true to core values, developing excellent pedagogy, and keeping equitable and loving relationships at the center of schooling…these are the right priorities, no matter what the circumstances.

Independent schools are in a privileged position to explore past practices, question the systems that have led to too much (e.g. homework) or too little (e.g. equity), and to choose next steps based on your highest educational values. Coming out of this traumatic upheaval with teaching and learning communities that are better than before— that is what excites us.

Like many schools, Greenwich Academy was looking to get educated on all of the issues surrounding gender identity and sexuality. After contacting peer schools, it was clear that Jennifer Bryan would be the right match for our needs and over the past year, she has come to our campus four times to speak with various constituents. Giving us language and context around an issue that felt potentially fraught was tremendously reassuring and has helped us move forward at a pace that was right for us.

We recently hosted Dr. Bryan for a set of [PK-12 Gender and Sexual Diversity] workshops for parents, faculty and administrators from private, public, and parochial school across the Twin Cities. Across two days and nine different events, she provided compelling, interactive presentations, carefully tailored to each audience that featured warm humor and terrific anecdotes. [We received] wildly enthusiastic reviews from parents, teachers, and administrators who remarked about how much they learned and how much more committed they are to doing GSD work moving forward!

Dr. Jennifer Bryan is simply the best workshop presenter I have encountered in 28 years of teaching. I teach in a conservative area and the issues of gender and sexual diversity are very challenging for many on our staff. What Jennifer was able to accomplish with them in a three-hour workshop was simply astounding. People who had voiced extreme fear of gay and transgender students were smiling and nodding by the end of the workshop. Dr. Bryan’s empathy and insight made her a perfect fit for our staff and we have grown so much as a school since meeting her.
