We had such a wonderful time at the first-ever-virtual, 2020 Impact Conference: connecting with colleagues across the state, learning more about how we can support our students & each other, challenging ourselves to grow and having some fun with you all!

We’re grateful to each of the talented speakers who presented at our virtual conference, and we’re delighted to be able to offer each session below. We hope they will provide continued learning and growth within our network.
