Summer Institute

CELEBRATE This Week No. 227

I’m the incoming director for a professional development consortium of 30 schools called The Lead Learners (formerly All Write). The biggest event of our year is Summer Institute. Originally, the former director was going to handle the details of the 2018 Institute, but plans changed when her son decided to get married on Institute weekend. (!) So Inga (The Lead Learners Tech Guru) and I have been learning the ropes.

We are excited to officially announce our 2018 Summer Institute line up.

Inga put together an interactive flyer — just click on the image. You can download and share the PDF…all photos are hyperlinked so you can find more information about each speaker.

  1. I always planned on making it to your summer institute before I retired, Ruth, but… You have a great line up planned, and it will be amazing as always. I look forward to the photographs and blog posts to feel a part of the glorious action.

  2. Wow! I know that you’ve been busy, but am sure it will be awesome with you managing, Ruth. I’ll note the date, but am never sure what summer plans are these past few years. Wishing it was closer so I could drive over for a day!
