The very last conversation I had before departing #Domains17 was with Brian Lamb. We exchanged sentiments about how it’s more difficult to publish blog posts about our best experiences since we want to adequately represent our thoughts.

Fortunately, at the end of the week I will participate in official training from […]


WORDJelly 2 – Synergy in Community

How we’re perceived, how much we earn, how many resources are available for our students, etc. Yet, when I see those that have endured—my teachers—I am proud to weather the path. I am thankful. For the gifts they have bestowed to me. For the opportunity to give […]
