This post was born of an idea I am tossing to my admin. No rest for the weary. Educators everywhere in the south are preparing for the return to school, and generally that means a little professional development. Too bad one size does not fit all in this case most of the time. So I am pitching an idea [...]

I’ve been catching up on the “Video on Demand” ISTE sessions that I chose not to attend for obvious reasons (they conflicted with my own choices, not to mention I could catch them after the fact!!) I saw this video used numerous times while at ISTE11. It’s the newest ”Did You Know” or “Shift [...]
I just want to thank those in my reader for helping me make grand plans!! I’ve been really focusing on some Teen Read Week plans already (yeah, its not until October!) but I like to start the brainstorming early. I think some of the motivation has come from book trailers being shared in my reader [...]
Too early to plan? (not for me….) Teen Read Week is always a week where we can find “fun” ways to celebrate reading or teens and their interests. Striking a balance can be challenging, but I do love to plan, even though it’s not until mid October. Execution of plans is always a different [...]

MEMORABLE conversations in informal settings included: Late night meetup at Chiles with Liz Davis, Lisa Thumann, and Chris Craft [...]
You know I love attending conferences, and the bigger the better most of the time. My previous post was all about my mistakes at this last conference. But another thought has struck me. And that is conference bag. Let’s reflect on conference bag integrity. I am going to do some ratings as I give my thoughts [...]
It’s day one of my recovery from a whirlwind trip to Philadelphia. ISTE 2011 was everything I expected and more! But I made some mistakes while there–mistakes I hope to learn from. So I begin my mental cleansing with reflecting on mistakes at conference. I should know better. Maybe next time, now that I’ve written [...]
Okay I am on this panel, and I have promised to help promote. It also falls into the category of “Shameless Self Promotion.” So I shamelessly copied Doug Johnson’s original post to share via my blog. Forgive me Doug!! You said it so well, how could I improve on it? Yeah, the answer was to [...]
