This year I had the honor of returning back to my favorite local educational family reunion also known as the Georgia Educational Technology Conference or GaETC. Thanks again, GaETC! It was so fantastic!
Not only did I have the opportunity to meet up with many of my EdTech friends across the state, but I also had the opportunity to present not one, but FOUR times as part of the conference. For those who came to one, two, all, or thought of coming to a session, THANK YOU! I also want to thank you for prompting me to finally update this sweet blog of mine.
