What others are saying

I had taken part in Learning Forward trainings through my Hope Street Group Fellowship and wanted to show leaders in my district the incredible work of Learning Forward and introduce them to top-notch, international professional learning that stressed the importance of the teacher leadership movement. They were blown away! We've already put in for more teachers and coaches to join us in Orlando!

—MeMe Ratliff, Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville, KY

This conference absolutely invigorated me, head to toe, and reassured me that I am in the right position, in the right profession. A lot to ask of a single conference, but Learning Forward definitely delivered.

—Jill Sonnenberg
