Hooray! Thursday 12/8 - Book Signing and Fireside Chat :)

It's been an exciting year - and super busy! It was my first year in a new role - leading technology and digital innovation as the Chief Technology Officer for a new school district on the north side of Chicago. Aaaannndd... my book was published! Hooray! 

It's been great to be able to write a full-length book so I could share ideas that were too big to fit into a single blog post. It has also been humbling to see how fellow educators around the world have been responding to and implementing the ideas I wrote. 

I also have been getting used to the idea of book signings. I'm horrible at multi-tasking - I can't read and have the TV on, I can't count and chat at the same time, and I canNOT sign books and talk. It's been a learning curve to remember how to spell my name while getting to know educators I meet at events. A fun learning curve :).

Speaking of book signings, LEAP Innovations graciously reached out to me to host a Book Signing and Fireside chat just in time for the holidays! The event itself is free and there will be books on sale at the event (or you could buy your own and bring it with you). If you're in the Chicago area on Thursday, December 8th, 5:00pm-7:00pm, please consider joining me to chat education, innovation and creating positive change for our students.
