Before taking the helm at Klein ISD in 2016, Bret served for 23 years in Leander ISD as a superintendent, assistant superintendent, principal and teacher. Growing up in Goldthwaite, Texas (where he graduated in a class of 30), Bret found his passion for public education through Teach For America, where he was a member of the second corps of teacher leaders. The students he taught in Houston, Texas and Baton Rouge, Louisiana inspire him to this day.
The ability to network with people who are doing the work is outstanding! Thank you for bringing the best to the conference.— 2017 Conference Attendee
This was perhaps the best professional learning I have received in over a decade! Well done Learning Forward – I am now a member and look to your organization for my future goals as an educator. A renewed sense of excitement regarding my role (as an instructional coach)! Thank you!— 2017 Conference Attendee
