Whew- I’m so glad summer is over. As I’ve said many times the last few weeks, “I can’t wait to school to start, so I can get a day off.” No, really, this was the busiest summer ever and I had to take an unintended break from blogging and caring in July as I was too busy getting ready for parent technology meetings and a three day summer bridge program with 150 Freshman that includes a BreakoutEdu box to “save” our kidnapped mascot from our rivals which nearly had me in tears. I was tired.
But this summer was great! I got to go to ISTE in San Antonio and volunteer at the Google Booth and got a preview of the new Google Forms options. Then in July I co-presented the technology strand at the World Language Project Summer Seminar in Santa Barbara. It was five days of non-stop and exciting commitment to quality language instruction. I was inspired every day by the general session speakers and the participants in our strand. I’ve got a ton of new ideas and ideas to be improved that I can’t wait to share.
Here’s to a happy, safe, and balanced 2017-2018 school year!
