  • I feel like I learned a lot this year and I appreciated the topics of both keynote speakers. They were very interesting and relevant. Both presenters were very personable and I will take away many good strategies from today.

  • The keynote speakers were fantastic. They were credible, engaging, and informative, and they provided an opportunity to increase self-awareness and personal bias to help increase equity in schools.

  • The information that the opening speaker presented was OUTSTANDING. It is relevant to the world we are living in today and helps to explain so many things. The same can be said about the closing speaker. Kudos to those involved in finding these two amazing people--they were the best I've listened to in a long time, if not ever.

  • Outstanding professional development day. Well organized, easy to navigate, excellent session options, powerful keynote speakers.

  • Both of the keynote speakers were AH-MAZING. I am feeling so inspired. This definitely filled my cup.

  • I thought the choice of speakers, especially the keynotes, showed the values the district is emphasizing.

  • mentioned earlier, but the keynote speakers! I attended to extended sessions for both as I was SO captivated

  • I took away multiple ideas to use within the classroom and in life. Loved the Morning Keynote speaker! Thank you!

  • I enjoyed Dr. Raj's presentation, he was so knowledgeable and talked about something so relevant for this time in history with the pandemic and mental health. Great picks for this year's speakers!

  • I enjoyed Dr. Raj very much. He was easy to listen to and gave thoughtful information. I would be interested in hearing more (I did attend his second session).

  • The first Keynote speaker was good. I wasn't expecting that. Even though I knew everything he was saying...I hadn't connected it in that manner. He was also and engaging presenter.

  • I particularly enjoyed Dr. Niraj Nijhawan as a speaker on many levels, but in particular for encouragement and resilience in our profession. Brain growth and moving our functioning from lower to higher brain developing is a fascinating and practical topic.

  • Dr. Raj was great. He explained the complex science of the brain in a way that was easy to understand to implement in real life.
