Throughout our three days, we enjoyed networking at our booth and attending a mix of keynotes and breakout sessions, with topics ranging from advocacy, policy, leadership, governance, and operations.
What a privilege hearing from keynote speaker, Dr. Howard Fuller, a distinguished education professor at Marquette University, and during the general session, hearing from Martha Nesbit who advocated for Georgia’s start-up charter law.
AAE Director of Charter Services, Rena Youngblood, facilitated a well-received esteemed panel highlighting the importance of advocacy on the part of board members, parents, teachers, and administrators.
The conference ended with a luncheon announcing Georgia Charter Schools Association’s 2018 Georgia Charter School of the Year, Leader of the Year and Teacher of the Year! These prestigious awards were established to honor excellence in education throughout the charter sector.
This year’s award winners are as follows:
