  • Ian Jukes
    Understanding the necessity to change is one thing but having the capacity to lead and implement change is another.
    Ian Jukes
  • Dr. Brian P. Chinni
    The skills that our students will need to thrive in our 21st century global economy are vastly different than that of the Industrial Age – an age for which our schools were initially built.
    Dr. Brian P. Chinni
  • Glenn Nowosad
    Transforming education may not be about the technology, but educational leaders need to make informed decisions around integrating technology into modern teaching, learning, and assessment practices.
    Glenn Nowosad
  • Nicky Mohan
    Trying to improve the old pedagogy is not going to achieve the outcomes we want – problem solving, innovation, critical thinking, creative thinking etc…

LeaderShift 2017 Conference - Dec 8th - Dec 9th - 2017

Ramapo College, NJ

  • Matt McClure
    Modern teaching, learning, and assessment practices require innovative leadership that bridges the gap between the past and future requirements for education.
    Matt McClure
  • George Saltsman
    We're here to serve and prepare students for the world they will have to face and if we do this well, they will help us face the future we will have to face.
    George Saltsman
  • Dr. Anthony Scannella
    "We, as educators, must stop working from a deficit model. This model stems from negative beliefs and assumptions regarding the ability, aspirations, and work ethic of systematically marginalized children and families. There is no such thing as a " broken child"; the children and the families we serve are not broken, they have simply learned the wrong answers to the questions of life. The task of leadership becomes this: making the right answers available, making them more intuitive and appealing, and empowering our most vulnerable into a life of purpose, choice, and mastery."
    Dr. Anthony Scannella
