I was honored to present at the third annual Reform Symposium a week ago. I spent my morning listening to John Spencer  narrate his journey toward more student-directed learning illustrated by his own original drawings. I then got to sit in on William Deyamport‘s personal branding session, which was full of important information on building and protecting your reputation and brand.  I was also sitting in on Ann Caryn-Cleveland‘s session on empowering women and girls through technology. Her story was an inspiring one, and I’m now hoping to start an all-girls robotics club this year. After that I caught part of Deven Black‘s story about his journey as a teacher, which is always powerful.

I was also happy to catch Kelly Tenkley‘s story of how she started Anastasia Academy. Despite the uphill climbs and stumbling blocks she faced, I was amazed at how easy she made it sound!  I give her kudos for having an idea, turning it into a dream and bringing it to a reality.

I missed the rest of the conference due to a wedding and other responsibilities, so I am looking forward to catching the presentations I missed.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I attended BLC 2011 in Boston and have jumped in to build my PLN. I am excited to listen to the recordings you posted especially the one on digital branding.

  2. That is so awesome! You gave me an idea about raising money for your club. Let’s connect and get it started!

    • I would love to connect! If you look at the top of my sidebar, I have a ChipIn project started and I already have some funds. I’ll email you.
