Teachers and students came together for a special education summit Monday.

Education leaders met at Manual High School for Transform 12.  The goal was to get teachers pumped for the upcoming school year and to look at how far Indiana has already come in terms of education.

Guest speaker Todd Whitaker and author of "What Great Teachers do Differently" encouraged educators to remember they are a team. He also reminded them of the commitment they've made to their students.

The event was not mandatory professional development.

"The teachers did choose to be here, the students are choosing to be here, parents are choosing to send their students here and these teachers have chosen to be here and be a part of this great venture,” said Julie Lauck, Director of Education for the Midwest Region.

Several charter school teachers from Chicago also attended the event.
