"This was my 4th time attending and it is remarkable that you are able to maintain the high caliber from year to year." "The sessions I attended focused on how I can not only be a better educator, but how to be a better person. I wasn't expecting that. Thank you."
"This conference is always great! Excellent speakers, excellent sessions, and excellent extras!"
"The broad range of sessions accommodates the "newbie" as well as those people who have been involved with Jostens Renaissance for a number of years. I was a "newbie" and now it all makes sense to me. It truly was a wonderful experience to see all the excitement from those attending, pick up new ideas to take back to my school."
"The conference addressed specific points of interest, questions and suggested answers…the speakers were engaging and genuine…"
"This conference reminds us as educators how to teach children – not just to teach to a test, or a subject, or an ability. I came with 8 teachers and we ALL came back excited about our year ahead and cannot wait for another reminder from Jostens next year."
"The Jostens Renaissance National Conference is like a professional revival -- designed for all levels of teachers, from a 1st year teacher to those who've been teaching for 25+ years."
One educator stated, "For me, the breakout sessions were the most valuable [part of the conference] because that is where I received ideas that I can bring back and use at my school."
