I don’t get out much! I love my classroom and family and when I first got in the business world, I was traveling the country on a weekly basis working with cell phone markets. I’ve seen a lot and really love my home… the life of those who travel and do conferences is not really for me.
However, there are a few things that are currently on my calendar, and if you read this blog and are going to be there, I hope you’ll come by and say hello.

Columbus, GA – 9 am – 3 pm – I will be doing an all day seminar sharing what my students and I are doing including our integration of strategies incorporated this year from Daniel Pink’s book A Whole New Mind. PLU’s issued.
February 20 – Discovery Educator’s Network EdTech Connect Program – 7 pm
There is one more conference that I’m working on and of course NECC but we won’t know about those proposals for a bit.
I hope if you’re somewhere close, you’ll consider coming to these events. The EdTechConnect event is free, however the others do have a fee. Just remember, each Tuesday night come on over to edtechtalk for Wow2 and that is free too!
It is exciting and honoring to be asked to appear. I wish I could be two people sometimes and come everywhere. (However, I’d drop everything to go to overseas, I think… especially Australia, New Zealand, or Europe… or South America… or China… or … oh, well, I can dream, can’t I?)
Really, the happiest place for me is right here. Teaching, being a Mom, and blogging it all.
