Don Benton, Director - Schools Without Walls (SWOW) Conference (AR)

"When we were looking for a practicing administrator who understood the practical aspects of technology integration as well as the pedagogical link to quality instructional practices, Brad was a natural fit! In addition to providing many take-always that could be implemented at the building and classroom level, participants found the follow-up conversations with Brad to be equally as valuable as his keynote. He is a true practitioner who walks the walk."

Brian G. Seguin, Director of Instruction - EdTech Summit (WI)

Dr. Brad Gustafson is a principal, author, and speaker who is an inspiring leader for any conference. His strong research base in literacy and other topics make him a must see for any educator. What I appreciate most, however, is his mix of humility, humor, and genuine connection that he models in every interaction. He inspires leaders and educators to connect with all members of their school communities. I give him my absolute highest recommendation.
