“As a principal and leader in my community, participating in ISTE really opened my eyes to how much educators really want to connect, share and get better. It is a motivational experience and makes you believe that we are better as an industry when we share and work together.” — Russ Schwartz, Principal, Park Trails Elementary School, Broward County, Florida
