Last week I worked with over 200 leaders in education.  It was the 21st SURN Leadership Conference held at the College of Willliam & Mary in Williamsburg, VA.  The conference ran from 6/19-6/20 and included speakers and workshops that brought innovative thinking and insight to attendees.  I provided graphic recording for 5 different sessions, check out some of the photos below.
