Sheets, Math, and Timelines - The Week in Review

Good morning from Key West, Florida where I have spent the week working with the great staff of Sigsbee Charter School. And while it is great to be in the sunshine state, it's also hard to be away from my little family for so long too. Thanks to Skype we're able to see each other every morning and at bedtime. But it's not quite the same and I can't wait to give them hugs. In the meantime I'll take advantage of being in Key West and enjoy the sunshine. I hope that wherever you are this weekend that you get outside for fun in the sun too.

These were the week's most popular posts:

Professional Development Courses Starting Next Week!
In October I am hosting two online professional development courses. Getting Going With G Suite starts on Tuesday. That course is designed for those who are new to using G Suite for Education.

Book Me for Your Conference
I’ve given keynotes at conferences from Australia to Alaska for groups of all sizes from 50 to 2,000+. My keynotes focus on providing teachers and school administrators with practical ways to use technology to create better learning experiences for all students. I like to shine the light on others and so I often share examples of great work done by others as well as my own. Send an email to richardbyrne (at) freetech4teachers.com book me today.
