Common Ground Pre-Conference Event
May 2, 2018

Learning Forward Maryland is sharing exciting news about an upcoming learning opportunity. LF MD is announcing a ground-breaking addition to the Common Ground 2018 conference in May!

We know that you share our belief in the power of transformative professional learning. Continuous professional learning goes beyond a one day experience and leverages the growth and collaboration to a long-term process. Learning Forward Maryland is partnering with Angela Maiers to provide a unique transformative pre-conference event that capitalizes on the shared value of connection, collaboration, and coaching because #youmatter.

Join us for our pre-conference day that will start your personal journey with Angela Maiers. For $79.00, you will immerse yourself in an experience which will ignite your brilliance and highlight our collective capacity as educators and leaders.

But because this is a transformative event, the learning will not stop there! Each participant who attends the pre-conference event will have the opportunity to continue the learning experience beyond the conference by participating in a private Facebook group, led by Angela herself, to expand your own professional horizons beyond Common Ground.

Whether you are able to join us in Ocean City or not, we are excited to share the opportunity to register for the post-conference that continues the learning and connection and focuses on building a community of learning to help us all become better teachers, leaders, parents and people.

Powerful, transformative professional learning that is guaranteed to be life-changing. We hope that you will join us in May!

With gratitude from our Learning Forward Maryland colleagues, Heather, Peter, Andrea, Angie, Jill, Antoinette, and Jamie Learning Forward Maryland
