The Learning Forward Academy experience developed the skills to craft, execute, and evaluate a plan that put teacher-led job-embedded professional learning into focus at my school. The award gave our school’s work instant credibility and developed the confidence to move our school’s personalized learning initiative forward. Through the LF Academy and the Foundation’s follow-up coaching calls, I gained a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the school change process and grew professionally.

— Andrea Von Biberstein, Learning Forward Foundation Academy Scholarship, 2016 and Learning Forward Foundation Team Grant, 2010

The Learning Forward Foundation grant allowed Learning Forward MI to implement a quality evaluation plan. Learning Forward Michigan was able to use the data to continuously reflect and adjust their work, over three years, to increase the effectiveness of its teacher leadership program for building equitable learning outcomes.

— Amy Colton, Michigan Affiliate, 2015
