Effective education leaders are collaborative in their approach to leading and teaching. From a season that may have left your team members feeling (physically) distant, worn down, or simply overwhelmed, it's time to rejuvenate — starting with your leadership health! 

The Leadership in Education Conference is one day, packed with actionable concepts for teaching and leading collaboratively. Whether you're an administrator, teacher leader, or classroom teacher, you're a key part of the leadership team. Take away fresh insight, practical strategies, and meaningful inspiration.   

When you invest in your leadership skills, you maximize your impact, bring out the best in others and transform education.

In-person event
Have you missed networking and connecting in person? So have we!
We've also learned to be flexible. This event is planned to be in-person, but if necessary, it will be switched to a virtual format.
