I attended the ASCD 2011 Conference held in San Francisco this year and will be sharing some of my learning journey with you here. Look out for more.
Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner. ASCD has over 175,000 members from over 148 countries who are professional educators from all levels and subject areas––superintendents, supervisors, principals, teachers, professors of education, and school board members.
“We are losing too many kids and wasting too much talent. We think we know what good education is, what our children need but what we don’t realize is that some where along the way we’ve lost sight of the whole picture. We’re born creative, curious, engaged and whole. We can be anything we want to be cos’ no one has yet told us that we can’t.”
