The Week in Review - Collaborate2Create

Good evening from Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix, Arizona. Today, I had the privilege to speak at the Collaborat2Create conference hosted by the Arizona Technology in Education Association and Glendale Elementary Schools. It was great to see so many teachers come out on a Saturday to connect and learn with each other.

Next week I'll be speaking in Amarillo and Abilene, Texas as well as Topeka, KS and Flagstaff, AZ. If you're going to be at any of those events, please say hello. Visit my work with me page to learn how to bring me to your school or conference.
