I’m Still Soaring

As they say, “All good things must come to an end.” The conference is over and I am home.  I am exhausted and have lost my voice from talking and talking!

I had a couple of these little Cuban expresso coffees and I am back in business.  Thank God for Cuban coffee!

Memorable Snapshots 

Here are a few snapshots of some memorable movements at Tots and Technology.

It is a privilege and on honor to have the “All Star” ribbon on my badge.  I love to share what I have learned with other teachers.  I hope to inspire others to integrate technology in fun and creative ways to engage their students and make learning fun.

Here are Sandy Cangelosi and I getting ready for day 2 of Tots and Technology.  We proudly represented Elementary Learning Solutions, LLC.

I met Shannon Kirkland from Texarkana when she stopped by our booth.  She was recognized this year by TCEA as an outstanding instructional technology specialist.  Read more about her here.

I also want to sent a shout out to Dr. Roland Rios, director of Technology at Ft. Sam Houston.  Thanks for offering and allowing Sandy and I to use your hotspot for our presentation.  The internet connection was acting wonky which spells D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R when you are presenting at a technology conference.  Thank you, thank you!

You can follow Dr. Rios on Twitter at @drrios.  He and his beautiful daughter both serve the children of those American men and women who serve our great county.  How cool is that!

They sure were a fun bunch!

What’s Next? 

Now I am looking forward to my next presentation at TechnoPalooza in Ft. Worth, July 30-31.

I will be co-presenting a session on augmented reality alongside my good friend Jennifer Kimbrell from Arkansas.  Don’t know Jen?  She has an amazing blog, go check it out: Tech with Jen.

Good times!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one that loves Cuban coffee. I have to order it on line. I have a cup every morning! Yum!

      I love it, my father is Cuban. I even have a little Cuban coffee maker my friend bought for me from Miami.

        I’m Puerto Rican. I have many espresso makers. I found an electric one at Sur La Table that I love. I use my trusty Italian over the stove one as a back up. So, here’s a weird question for you…do you dip buttery crackers in your coffee? My Puerto Rican grandmother used to crush crackers into her coffee in the afternoon. Not sure if anyone else does this.

          I would dip Cuban bread in it if I had some. There is no Cuban bread here in TX 🙁
