Revisiting our 2014 Conference with Keynote by Angela Duckworth

This week we are posting Angela’s keynote address from our 2014 Conference “Developing Character: Student Achievement & Socio-Emotional Learning.”

We encourage you to grab some lunch, some friends, and sit down and enjoy the truly engaging, thoughtful, and thought-provoking words of Angela Duckworth.

And again, we would like to express how humbled we were by Vermont’s Secretary of Education Rebecca Holcombe’s remarks, how enlightened we were by Angela Duckworth , how energized by  the work of educators across Vermont, and how very inspired we were by the students in attendance and presenting.

Thank you to everyone for you energy & passion which make the conference what it is. Our work is truly a reflection of your work & dedication to education.


Here are a few other resources from the conference that you might enjoy.
