For six years, TICAL cadre member Becci Gillespie has been superintendent-principal of Pleasant Grove Joint Union School District, a single-school, K-8 district in a rural area 25 miles from Sacramento, California. Rural for now, that is. Big plans are in the works to build a whole new community within the district, complete with ten to twelve new schools! Hear Becci talk about how she worked with her staff to increase their use of technology and her hopes of maintaining the good things about her small district as it grows to many times its current size.
