Simon Holzapfel is a former head of school, former history and economics teacher and former member of the NYSAIS Commission on Accreditation. He spends his time helping educators, administrators and board members bring more adaptable and visible ways of working into their schools –from the classroom to the boardroom– so they can enjoy less stress, more learning and a more energetic, productive experience of their working life. He also is an organizational agility coach. Outside of work, you’ll find him riding a bike, skiing, reading or eating stinky cheeses, but never at the same time.
