This community of learners and true experts are so easy to access! Their willingness to share their knowledge on school improvement, student growth, granting writing, and beyond is why I have stayed connected for 10 years while working with 2 different districts.
— Bridget Hockmeyer, Saginaw Township Community Schools Interim State/Federal Program Coordinator

When I started in my role 4 years ago, I didn’t know what I didn’t know. MASFPS events have allowed me to connect with others and to create a group of colleagues I can share and connect with, and learn from. Now, I know exactly what I don’t know, and where to turn to figure it out.
