Thank You One Conference Presenters!

When the concept of what is now The One Conference was first conceived, the team had one question:  Would enough of our talented, thoughtful, creative staff members be willing to step forward to openly share their practice with their colleagues?

The answer to that first question has been a deafening, humbling, wonderful YES!

230 of our staff members stepped forward to lead sessions at The One Conference. Another 23 were featured speakers on The Rockstar Stage. Others facilitated learning in the Hands-on Learning Area along with a team of students from Blair and Waukesha Transitions Academy.

Openly sharing your practice, your story, your ideas with others can be overwhelming and intimidating! Each of the people that shared at The One Conference put aside their own fears and insecurities to present for the benefit of their colleagues.

That kind of dedication to each other, to the growth of other educators across our system, is something we acknowledge and greatly appreciate. It is something that is becoming a hallmark of being an educator in the School District of Waukesha, and we are all better for it!

So, thank you!

Thank you to all of you that made The One Conference the special and powerful event that it is. We could not do it without you, and honestly, we would not want to. You teach and inspire us.
