Jimmy Casas is an experienced, passionate, honest educator focused on making a difference in the culture of classrooms and schools.  After spending over 25 years as an administrator, he is now focused on coaching others. The culture of a school starts with every individual working towards a similar set of values and goals. The way he addresses individuals showcases why he does what he does.  He wants every person to live their excellence, and do it as best as they possibly can. The greatest gift we can give anyone is the gift of time. Jimmy walks us through why this is so important and how he lives this every day.
