  1. A great way to sum up your learning. My favorite is #8 ”Changing curricula can be like moving a cemetery” Why does it have to feel like moving the dead? It is time to focus on the living and move on!

  2. Lorri – Great summary and wonderful way to capture your learning from the conference. In my role I particularly was drawn to #7 – choice does matter. Great to meet you face-to-face!

    Cheers,
