Testimonials

Education is a human endeavor and the relationships really matter. Students remember when a teacher really believes in them and it sets the course for their education."

– Charlotte Danielson
Author and 2017 ILC Speaker

Watching faculty in practice is so valuable, and the format of the sessions that I watched worked really well: They [the speakers] gave a brief intro before telling us what we were going to see, then we saw the teachers in action with students, and then gave time to debrief afterwards. Being in the classroom is useful and important to me."

– Megan Ryan
Teacher at Helios School for Gifted Children

I was blown away. It was easily one of the most impressive conferences I have attended. Spectacular group of presenters, amazing topics, and beautifully organized."
