The Week in Review - Home With Max

Good evening from Maine where I'm home after a great week in North Carolina for the NCTIES 2016 conference. Many thanks to everyone who came to my presentations and workshops at the conference. It was great to see new faces and reconnect with friends I've made at NCTIES over the last five years.

I'm always thankful for the opportunity to travel and work with teachers. Likewise, I'm always happy to come home to my dog. Max and I had a great day playing in the snow and sun today. I hope that wherever you are you had a relaxing weekend day too.
