The “Multiplier of the Year"award, organized by Wiseman Group, recognizes leaders worldwide who successfully amplify the capabilities of those around them.

“I am humbled and appreciative of the recognition,” said Sears.  “I am fortunate to be a part of a high-functioning teaching and learning team that works tirelessly to support amazing students and teachers. I truly believe in creating the conditions that empower others to lead. The future is bright in Forest Hills as we continue to build our EPIC culture of teaching and learning!”

“Greg has created an environment where we, collectively, are invested in the development of our map and taking the journey together,” said Kimberly Pence, Associate Director of Middle School Teaching and Learning. “People are willing to innovate and create new opportunities, all with students being at the center of our work.”
