In this #InnerGeek Series we want to highlight some of our alums and residents in their journey before and after i.c.stars. Find out what they are doing now, and how they discovered their inner geek.

It’s what we do with what’s up here, that makes us knowledge workers, that makes us geeks, that makes us cool. My partner in crime here will say “geeks aren’t just technology people Sandee, you are a geek! you are a really big geek! you are a leadership geek!” and I guess that’s true. So we’ve come to define geek as expert. Whatever is that you do, be an expert at it and embrace your geek.

About Sandee

Sandee Kastrul's photo
I believe that the definition of leadership is making opportunities for others. I am a leadership geek and find that the richest opportunities for all of our futures lie in education. I am a believer in reciprocity in education and that as educators we are both teacher and student. I believe that the world can be a classroom if we open ourselves to the notion that application, concatenation and liberation start with listening. Schedule Sandee to Speak
