In our first Book Signing and Meet & Greet event, we open our doors to New York City's Principal of Principals, Mr. Luis Torres. Luis Eladio Torres, president of the New York City Elementary School Principals Association, has been a principal in New York City for over 18 years. After serving in the U.S. Navy for 10 years, Torres earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from City College, a master's degree in education from Mercy College, and an advanced degree in administration from Hunter College.

The featured book for this event is titled: The Six Priorities: How to Find the Resources Your School Community Needs. Luis Eladio Torres challenges a common assumption: that education is the "first priority" for families, including those who are raising their children in low-income, high-need communities. Instead, he argues that these families must confront daunting challenges in five other areas—food, shelter, safety, health, and access to technology—before they can focus on their children's education.

During this thought-provoking discussion and meet & greet, Torres will discuss how to address the needs of the community so that our children can focus on their education. He'll share strategies you can implement and his experiences as the award-winning principal of an elementary school in the Bronx and as a leader in New York City's community schools network.
