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.
