Chicago 2013 session participant comments:

"Jennifer Morrison is extremely knowledgeable about data collection and assessment, and is able to share it in an effective and useful way.  She is an awesome presenter who gave the participants the opportunity to interact and learn from each other as well as from her.  Most importantly, I am able to go back and immediately implement what I learned.  What a terrific learning experience!"

"This has been an empowering pre-conference.  I am leaving with a more comprehensive understanding of what data literacy means.  I feel that I have the tools and knowledge to take back so that I can contribute to the turn-around taking place in our district.  [Jennifer gave us] extremely valuable information and time to mentally prepare and plan for implementation."

"Jen presented solid ideas on assessment and data literacy that can be applied in any school setting.  She demonstrated extraordinary thought and research to guide each participant to understand types of data and principles of data literacy.  Jen’s use of varied teaching strategies kept us engaged and honored our learning needs."

"Jen Morrison is wonderful!  She’s an excellent presenter, made space for participant voice, used presentation techniques that engaged us in making the learning personal, laid a theoretical foundation that was actually helpful, and honored the times of the schedule.  I really appreciated her knowledge of her topic and the many ways that she has worked with schools, principals, and teachers….  The session is just what I needed, and I’d enroll in another session by her in a heartbeat!"

"This was an insightful workshop that I will value for many years.  She provided many strategies that I am looking forward to implementing in my school."
