KIND WORDS FROM ATTENDEES of past conferences

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!”
