Get Motivated Conference Highlights

Yesterday the administrative team headed to the Blue Cross Arena to attend the “Get Motivated” conference.  There was an incredible lineup of speakers and teachers sharing wisdom and insight.  Several teachers attended as well and everyone seemed to take away some great ideas and inspiration.  The following quotes were taken from Jason Gianotti’s twitter updates during the conference.
