Minnesota Network

Purpose of the Minnesota Network

The purpose of the Minnesota Network is to provide teachers opportunities to connect, to offer each other support and encouragement, exchange best practices, and share advice relevant to the Minnesota context.

Why Participate?

  • Connecting: Grow personal relationships with educators who are implementing similar school designs, facing similar challenges, and/or serving similar students.
  • Feedback: Get helpful feedback from your peers at other schools, on your learning and leadership models.
  • Events: Attend events, such as learning dinners, networking happy hours, guest speakers, and workshops.
  • Storytelling: Hold up your work and get help telling your story, to your local families and community, and to broader Minnesota audiences through our blog and other channels.
  • Encouragement: And finally, you’ll get encouragement and enthusiasm for the great work you are doing. You don’t have to feel like you’re in this alone!
