What Others are Saying about Dr. Andy Parker’s Keynotes

“Dr. Parker’s leadership has been a driving force in my own development. I worked directly with him as an assistant principal and principal for years. When I became a superintendent, I asked him to deliver the keynote for one of my district’s in-service days with staff. He did not disappoint! He presented an additional workshop to our school leadership teams that was provocative, relevant to their work, and left them wanting more!”
