I am still mentally unpacking all of the great learning and connections made at the 17TH ANNUAL WELV CONFERENCE! As I explained in my brief remarks prior to an amazing keynote by Dr. Carol Ann Tomlinson, I couldn’t have felt more at home. Growing up in a household with three sisters and marrying into a family where I now have (just on my wife’s side) 6 more sisters and 12 more aunts – who have daughters of their own – it felt normal to be surrounded by amazing, intelligent, impactful, and inspiring women.
Some of my key takeaways were related to:
- What’s New in Education Policy in Washington?
- The Future of Education in Virginia
- Why Women Are More Effective Leaders Than Men
A big thanks to WELV Leadership (Elaine Fogliani & Liza Scallet) for allowing Discovery Education to support this meaningful conference.
