KIND WORDS FROM ATTENDEES of past conferences
Ed Cervone, Executive Director of Educate Maine
“The conference focused distinctly and wholly on the foundational principle of what must, unquestionably, be present before students of all ages can learn: Relationships.
Moving us to tears and laughter, frequently in the same session, the presenters modeled the profound impact that connections between school adults and students can make. It was simply my favorite conference of the decade…reminding us all about why we do this work, in both inspiring and full of practical take-aways!”
Jodi McGuire, Director of Instructional Support, Yarmouth Maine Schools
Joshua Ottow, 2015 Maine Assistant Principal of the Year
Stephen Avery, Teacher, SAD 6
Charity Williams, Teaching Principal, Princeton Elementary School
