About the Presenter
Tammy Quist has been a teacher, principal, and consultant for over 20 years for every grade level K-16. She obtained her B.A. in Secondary Education, Political Science and Social Science at the University of MN-Morris, and her M.S. in School Administration from Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD. She is certified as a superintendent and describes herself as a "change agent" - always looking at ways of improving her own performance as well as facilitating the growth of others. Tammy was honored to be selected Teacher of the Year as well as nominated for Colorado Principal of the Year. She says, however, "My biggest professional distinctions happen when the clients I serve grow, excel and are recognized for their outstanding efforts and performance. To build that capacity and help others succeed is the highest honor one could hope for."
