Of all the professional organizations, Learning Forward is the only one where I truly belong as a professional learning advocate. Here, I know that my growth truly matters as it impacts the success of the students in my district and beyond.— Amanada Ball
This conference was first class all the way. It helped me get a better understanding of many of the various aspects of professional learning and what it looks like across the country/world. I had heard nothing but positive comments about this conference and it did not disappoint. I appreciate all of the learning opportunities and the support of the staff.— 2018 Attendee
