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. — Ronni Edwards, Learning Forward Foundation Academy Scholarship, 2017
The opportunity to be a part of the Learning Forward Academy Class of 2019 has provided me with opportunities to focus on teacher leadership in my district. The practice of digging into data, connecting with colleagues, and problem solving has provided me with new perspectives on supporting teacher growth at school sites.— Shannon Bogle, Learning Forward Foundation Academy Scholarship - 2017
