This was my first Learning Forward conference experience. I was able to attend with 5 other colleagues. From the moment it started we felt welcomed and a part of a much larger community of teachers/coaches and learners. The sessions were directly relevant to my work and not only gave me new ideas, theories or frameworks but gave me the opportunity to truly reflect on my own practice.— Heidi Wilhelm
This conference was differentiated for the needs of my school leadership team. They were able to choose from a variety of sessions that addressed different areas.— Priscilla Hopkins, Principal
