“[Lily Scott] was a powerhouse presenter (someone who is in the classroom, on the front lines, and knows of what she speaks) who shares tip after practical tip in a meaningful and sensitive fashion. She was a real treasure. Honestly, it was one of the most worthwhile and well organized programs I’ve ever had the privilege to be a part of!”

-Teacher, Moriah School of Englewood, NJ


“Having attended PD summits in the past, I usually have a few takeaways that are great and the rest I feel was ok or a waste of time. This summit was WOW! I walked away every single day with practical tools and strategies that I could begin using right away. It was wholesome, rich, inspiring, and mind-blowing.”

-Director of General Studies, Torah Day School of Phoenix, AZ


“Lily Howard Scott is amazing!  Her ideas were relevant and spot on for the environment we are all facing going back to school in September. I love the programs that Hidden Sparks puts together.  The foundation of knowledge that each presenter carries astounds me and the manner in which material is presented is so well thought out and organized.  These presenters inspire me to want to learn more about best practices for educating students”
