900 attendees learn from Michael Fullan, Anthony Muhammad at 40th Annual COSA Conference
Some 900 participants at the 40th Annual COSA Conference in Seaside heard from keynote speakers Michael Fullan, Anthony Muhammad, Rob Saxton and Nancy Golden. They laughed along with comedy troupe Wavelengths, and marveled at a "robot rumble." They honored current and past presidents, former COSA executive directors Ozzie Rose and Kent Hunsaker, and state award winners. They attended scores of best-practices breakout sessions, and engaged in countless conversations with colleagues from around the state.
Posted here are some photos to commemorate the event:
