This conference has changed the direction of my career. It has reinvigorated my hope - that even though I left the classroom, I can be both an artist and educator. Endless thanks. 

As a result of attending this institute, I want to spend more time getting to know my students and make room for their voices more. 

What a brilliant conference! I am so glad I came. The two hour creative debrief at the end of each day with a cohort made the experience so much deeper and more meaningful than all the conferences I attend where I am filled to overflowing and can't digest my experience. Bravo!
