This summer, I had the esteemed privilege to present at ISTE 2016 in Denver, CO. It was a week of firsts.
First time west of Iowa.
First time seeing the Rocky Mountains.
First time seeing elk.
First time attending ISTE.
First time presenting at ISTE.
Not only did I get to meet several people face to face that I follow on Twitter, I got to meet many new people that are just as passionate about empowering educators to lead their learning. It's apparent there is a need for this, not just in Iowa, but all over the US.
I hope that my presentation inspired some to go back and start their own Personalized PD initiative so every educator in their district can become Professionally Driven.
