Attendee Perspectives

“The Folio Summer Institute serves as a retreat and source of inspiration for me and my colleagues. Each year I arrive somewhat fatigued from a rich and full school year and leave feeling invigorated and excited to apply what I learn back at my school. The keynote speakers are always dynamic and the attendees are happy to be there and share their collective wisdom and experience. The Summer Institute is, without a doubt, one of the best professional development opportunities for school administrators and leaders. I’ll be back!”

“Once again, I was energized to continue to utilize Folio for professional growth with my faculty and for myself. The new ideas I learn and collaboration with other schools have become vital to my summer reflection and planning for Folio in the upcoming year.” 

Jessica Banks
Assistant Head of Lower School
The Out Of Door Academy

The Folio Summer Institute gave me multiple fresh perspectives on how to create a culture of learning through conversation. Through engaging workshops I was able to meet educators from around the country who use Folio in innovative ways to help teachers grow. As a teacher I came away with a much better sense around how Folio can help everyone in a school and the larger school culture goals that Folio can help address.
