Linda Dzialo, former deputy superintendent of Lawton Public Schools, has been invited to attend next week’s Schools for Tomorrow Conference, an exclusive event hosted by The New York Times that brings together the brightest minds in education, technology, government and business.
Dzialo is president and CEO of Oklahoma-based Great Expectations, a nonprofit foundation that provides intensive professional training to teachers and administrators. The foundation’s school transformation model, Great Expectations, emphasizes academic excellence and a climate of mutual respect.
The by-invitation-only event on Sept. 13 is designed to promote dialogue and action in the education sector, focusing on the school of the future. Approximately 400 influential leaders from both public and private sectors, including educators, government officials, philanthropists and investors, will come together for this one-day conference.
Over 40,000 educators have attended Great Expectations training since 1991, and more than 200,000 students are taught by Great Expectations teachers every year.
