On May 24th, the Classroom of the Future Foundation held their annual Innovation in Education event, where teachers, schools, and districts from around San Diego were honored. The event was hosted at Sea World, with incredible food and drinks, raffle prizes, student displays, and a fabulous award ceremony. It was really exciting to hear about all of the innovative programs happening in and around San Diego county and to network with other like-minded educators.
I was extremely honored to be chosen by SDCUE as the (1st ever) Innovative TOSA, and received my award at this event.
The National CUE conference in Palm Springs is my all time favorite technology conference. Each year that I've attended, I leave with great ideas and am ready to make big changes in the classroom. This year was no different. During my three days at the conference, I attended sessions and keynotes that were inspirational and motivating.

Here are a few of the great sessions that I attended:
