Join Us for Our 2019 Leaders in Education Event!

Discover What Great Leaders Do Differently

Forward Edge is set to host an event for district leaders on January 25th, 2019. This morning full of engaging, interactive learning features speaker, Jimmy Casas. Last year, Forward Edge started this event as a part of the Premier Partner Program. This exclusive program is a way of showing how much we value our partner schools by providing services and information that we hope will provide added value to their districts. Because we want the schools we work with to have access to the newest information in the changing educational landscape, we look for the top speakers in education to make this speaking event an event to remember. With that being said, we are so honored and excited to have Jimmy join us as our keynote speaker this year! 

Jimmy Casas served twenty-two years as a school leader, including fourteen years as Principal at Bettendorf High School. Under his leadership, Bettendorf was named one of the Best High Schools in the country three times by Newsweek and US News & World Report. Jimmy was named the 2012 Iowa Secondary Principal of the Year and was selected as one of three finalists for NASSP 2013 National Secondary Principal of the Year. In 2014, Jimmy was invited to the White House to speak on the Future Ready Schools pledge.

Jimmy is also the author of three books, “What Connected Educators Do Differently,” “Start. Right. Now. – Teach and Lead for Excellence,” and his latest release and best-selling book “Culturize – Every Student. Every Day. Whatever it Takes.” Jimmy currently serves as an adjunct professor for Drake University, teaching courses in educational leadership. Finally, he is the owner and CEO of J Casas & Associates, an educational leadership company aimed at organizing and providing world-class professional learning services for educators across the country.
