Vasthi Acosta found herself in just such a position when she became the Principal of Amber Charter School in 2008.
Luckily, Acosta was not alone.
So, Ms. Acosta picked up the phone.
"My first year as head of school at Amber, our test scores were horrific," recalls Acosta.
Lamb connected Acosta to a district school Principal named Sherry Font-Williams, who experienced the exact same predicament years before at PS137 in the Bronx.
"Here was a principal who didn't know me from a hole in the wall," says Acosta. "But because I was a part of her network, she was so receptive. It was helpful and it gave me hope - she was able to survive it, and I could survive it too."
Acosta did more than survive though, with help from her network partner she was able to dramatically improve her school's outcomes.
Acosta, for one, is grateful for the ongoing collaborations which have included everything from getting advice on working with unions to sharing grant funding.
"We don't have to be on opposite sides of the road," says Acosta. "We're all working for the same thing.
