The 2018 Model Schools Conference for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's International Center for Leadership in Education was one of the most heartfelt events that I've attended in a while. The leadership team felt it important to hit some hard-hitting and emotional topics due to the news of the past couple of years; and it was incredible watching teachers bond over topics like inclusion, school safety and technology. I felt honored to document this year's event with a group that has become my work family.
