Thank you for the opportunity to highlight the work underway in Arlington ISD made possible through the support of the Foundation. We are passionate about Learning Forward, the Foundation and I personally jump at every opportunity to share how together we are impacting our community of learners. It is such meaningful work. I get excited thinking about spreading the news of the Foundation and its work through academy members, especially in support of enjoining others to the timeless endeavor of learning and leading learning.

The Learning Forward Foundation grant offered me the opportunity to serve as an extension of a passionate group of individuals who share my same level of high conviction and advocacy around the power of learning as an agent for transformation (individual, institutional and societal transformation).

In the short time I have been working with the Learning Forward Academy, I have been able to make valuable connections to other incredible educational leaders from across the nation who are immersed in the work of school improvement. They have encouraged and inspired my work as I begin the Academy journey. The insight and learning has provided essential support for job-embedded professional learning on my campus as we begin to implement lab classrooms to improve instructional practice.
