Introducing the 2017 Dream Team


The national LearnZillion Dream Team is a group of educators who have created high-quality educational materials and helped bring valuable professional development to districts all over the country. Over the past seven years, we’ve selected and worked with top educators from across the country through our Dream Team program. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the 2017 Dream Team cohort!

“It’s really nice, in the role as an Ambassador, being able to meet up [with other Ambassadors] ... I’ve given presentations individually and collaboratively before and whenever you get together with somebody for presentations it’s always better in the end because you have two or three minds working together instead of one.” - Sean Nank, Dream Team ‘13, ‘14, ‘15, ‘16, ‘17
