Soak up the speakers & performances
At its core, this Summit invites all of us to connect with the remarkable possibility and passion of teaching. It's not about politics, pedagogy or partisanship; instead, we'll spend the day putting teachers in the spotlight and cheering them on as they head back into the second half of the school year.
