Learning Forward offers a unique conference experience for educators looking to improve their practice, regardless of the role they play in their organizations. The sense of community that the conference provides and value of the time spent learning in community is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced at other conferences.— Anne Conzemius, SMART Learning Systems
The annual conference provides school leaders like myself with an opportunity to think, dialogue and learn more about the professional issues that we all face on a daily basis. We are able to recharge our passions and rejuvenate our spirit as we interact with like-minded colleagues from around the world.— Erick Valentin, Academy Class of 2019
