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.— Tom Schmidt, Bismarck Legacy High School, Professional Learning Innovation Think Tank Challenge, 2017
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.
