This year we are pleased to announce the keynote speaker will be by Dr. Irvin Scott, Senior Lecturer on Education for the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Over the past three decades Dr. Scott has worked in the education profession, from his beginnings as a teacher, to principal, assistant superintendent, chief academic officer, foundation deputy director, and now as part of Harvard’s faculty. In recent years his focus has been on educational leadership; developing initiatives to help transform how teachers are recruited, developed, and rewarded; and leading a team to initiate the Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers experience, which has become a teacher-driven movement found across the country.
