Download 2017 Learning Forward Foundation Annual Report

As a recipient of the Learning Forward’s The Principal as a Leader of Professional Learning scholarship and through my work sessions with the foundation’s representatives and my executive coach, I understood the critical importance of ongoing, focused professional learning opportunities. My action plan provided my teachers with differentiated, connected, professional learning opportunities that have further developed teachers’ skills and greatly impacted student learning. The year following our work with Learning Forward, our school earned an award from our district as a reward school based upon the improved growth and achievement of our students. I credit our focused, driven efforts to grow our teachers through differentiated professional learning as a major factor in our receiving this award.

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).

Having the ability to collaborate with professionals from around the globe has been instrumental in getting the students of legacy high school opportunities for 21st century education. After every conference call or webinar we feel even more excited and thankful for this possibility.
