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.
