“The MISF Leadership Conference was an invaluable experience. Other than the great workshops, the conversations and connections made for a great time and to help remind me that we may be independent but we are NOT alone.”
“Being a first timer, I thought the conference was great. I couldn’t see how anyone could afford to be out of the building so early in the school year, but I now know how important it is for to take that
time to recharge and make new connections.”
“It has been a few years since I have been to the conference, but was reminded this week of how important it is to be a part of a community. How true it is that we are stronger together!!”
“This was a wonderful program to be a part of. I have left more energized and more knowledgeable. I felt welcomed and apart of a community. I really appreciated, as a newbie, that I was lifted up and encouraged.”
“As usual, I left school wondering if I should really be going and then like usual, was so glad that I took the time. It was a great opportunity to catch my breath.”
“To be honest, it is hard to carve out time for the School Leadership Conference every year, but every year, I am so grateful I did. It fuels me. As long as I am a school leader, I will never miss it.”
