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.

As a recipient of the Learning Foundation Academy Scholarship, I have been so blessed to participate in the Learning Forward Academy. It has been an exciting experience to learn with educators from across the country as we identify authentic problems of practice and utilize inquiry-based learning to bring about significant change through professional learning. One of my greatest challenges as a leader of professional learning is having the ability to assess the impact of our work. The academy has provided me with new tools and frameworks to use in measuring success. As we pause to give thanks at this time of year, I add the scholarship and academy to my gratitude list.

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.
