Big Ideas Fest 2013

So, one of the things I love about my new school are the opportunities I have had professionally - and I'm only in my third fourth month (wow, where'd the time go?) of teaching here. This week I am attending the Big Ideas Fest Conference in San Francisco, California. My principal asked me before the iPad summit if I would be interested in attending and creating a committee to help our school develop the next big idea to implement. I jumped on board for multiple reasons, including that it sounds awesome to be at the forefront of new ideas instead of constantly feeling like I'm playing catch-up. The conference has just started, but I'm already feeling super excited and motivated. It helps that Taylor Mali is sitting at the next table over, and that the co-founder and CEO of the Malala Fund spoke last night. ;)

I'll let you know more of what I learned later!
