The award acknowledges Dr. Enfield’s enduring support of Highline Big Picture High School, her outspoken leadership on eliminating out-of-school suspensions, and her focus on knowing each student well. In presenting the award, Big Picture Regional Director Jeff Petty highlighted Dr. Enfield’s bold leadership of Highline’s strategic plan, which reflects a commitment to interest-driven learning, community-based internships, and parent involvement — practices key to Big Picture schools. “Highline’s Promise to know every student by name, strength and need captures the district’s commitment to personalizing learning,” said BPL Co-Executive Director Carlos Moreno.  “Big Picture Learning and Highline share a commitment to equity for all students and the expectation that all students can achieve success.” “This award is a testament to the work of the talented, committed team we have in Highline,” said Dr. Enfield. Big Picture Learning is a national network of schools that emphasize personalized learning and workplace experiences in the community, such as job shadows and internships.
