About the Book

As a single teenage mother, Danna Diaz wasn’t thinking about her career. While she dreamed of becoming a teacher, she’d taken that option off the table when she dropped out of high school to have a child. Or so she thought.

In Servant Leadership: My Journey from Teacher to Superintendent, Dr. Danna Diaz shares her personal and professional journey of challenge, courage and success, and the seven principles she used to make her way out of early poverty into a position of leadership in education. With inspiration and action steps for readers, Dr. Diaz provides motivation for other women educators to pursue their dreams and take their place at the head of the table.
