There's not a more insightful educator or inspirational leader of middle school girls and their families anywhere. She sees the leader, the powerhouse intellect, the courage in every girl lucky enough to be in circleof influence!

What a wonderful gift she gives to these girls. There is nothing more important to teach in the classroom than empowerment. I truly wish all young girls could be exposed to such wonderful lessons at this critical age. Marja will be getting my vote.

With Seattle Girls School we don't have to wish there was an educational program that would help our girls flourish, all we have to do is support and invest in a living model of a visionary and successful school right in our own community.
