Who we are shapes how we learn

Frederick Brown, Learning Forward’s president and CEO, believes in the potential to transform our schools and our children’s futures by ensuring educators are at their best so students can become their best. Brown knows firsthand how excellent educators can change lives, not just from professional experience, but from his experience as a student transitioning from a diverse urban school to a rural school, where he was one of few students of color. Brown will share the importance of educators recognizing how lived experience — their own and their students’ — defines who they are and helps them bring the best version of themselves to classrooms, schools, and systems. Drawing on his professional learning experience, including as a sought-after facilitator and author of Becoming a Learning System and The Learning Principal, Brown will offer insights for educators who aspire to create the conditions that will enable each of their students to thrive.
