Our Team

NHEESS is governed by a statewide leadership team of K-12 and college educators and administrators and national CEEDAR representatives. We work as a team through local education associations to share best practices, help support the development of relevant leadership training programs through mini-grants and encourage current and future educational leaders to participate in formal training programs.
