My introduction to Learning Forward came more than 20 years ago while using its exceptional consultation services. The organizations I’ve served and the educators with whom I’ve served have benefited immensely by participation in Learning Forward’s annual conferences, summer institutes, immersion in the standards of professional learning, and access to other continuous improvement resources and publications. But, most importantly, by concerted efforts to improve the practice of all educators, students have been the direct beneficiaries. I am honored to serve on the Board of Trustees.
