Teacher of the Year!

We are honored to feature the 2018 Teacher of the Year, Mandy Manning, at Learning 2018.




We are excited to announce that the 2018 National Teacher of the Year, Mandy Manning will be featured at Learning 2018!


Mandy teaches English to newly arrived refugee and immigrant students in the Newcomer Center at Joel E. Ferris High School in Spokane, Washington. In her classroom, Mandy uses experiential projects like map-making to help her students process trauma, celebrate their home countries and culture, and learn about their new community.

While Learning 2018 is primarily focused on Workplace Learning, it is critical that we recognize, collaborate with and learn from our education colleagues at K-12 and higher education!

“Let’s teach our students to be fearless,” she says. “Let’s teach them to be brave when confronted with uncertainty. Brave when they fail. Brave in meeting new people. Brave in seeking opportunities to experience things outside of their understanding.”
