The next phase

It's been a little bit since I posted, and I thought I'd quickly reflect on things over the past few weeks. First off, I thought I'd include a picture from a presentation (not my best work) that I did a few weeks back. The title of the presentation was "Finding the nerd in us all" and I felt really good about it before I started, but going on at the very end of the day of a LONG conference is tough for anyone.

This past week was very busy for me on the prepartion front as well. This summer, ISTE is coming to California and I submitted four proposals for the event. I hope I get 1 to be honest... I just thought I'd load as much as I could into the event to see what stuck. We'll see... I wasn't as prepared as I'd like to be for the submission process. I submitted four (or more) to the annual CUE conference as well. Hoping for another great year!

This coming week, I have some BTSA training to help with as well as interviews for a VAPA consultant for our office. Looking forward to an exciting week.

Hey Mark,

My students constantly throw that nerd word around. It seems that the people that are comfortable with nerd being a positive thing are often the ones who are showing great success. I was called a nerd, or a preppy when I was in high school. I have ran into much of the in crowd as gas station attendants and all... they don't make fun of me for being a nerd anymore.
