As the former principal of Elizabeth Hall International Elementary School, Bennice Young saw first-hand how Catalyst promoted healthy relationships between educators and students, especially those that were the most fragile and hardest to reach. Whether it is through the laughter that comes from an engaging story or the warmth that comes through during a coaching session, time with Bennice is memorable. She’s also a great one to travel alongside if you want to learn tricks for getting better accommodations…she’s talked her way into room upgrades and better tables at restaurants enough times for it to be considered a skill-set. Plan extra time when you go out to eat, however. She never orders straight off the menu.
