I had been hoping to make NECC 2007 – but we were planning to do an east coast vacation (our girls are the right age to appreciate it) and there was a time conflict â€“ and the cost was prohibitive. However, since my wife broke her knee we put our trip off a month, my principal let it be known that there was some conference money available, and voila Iâ€™m going to Atlanta! Iâ€™ll even be able to make the EduBloggerCon on Saturday.
Iâ€™ve been a member of my school districtâ€™s science cadre for the last 10 years and so I havenâ€™t gone to a tech conference out of state (but lots of science conferences which are cool too), since I attended a CUE conference in Palm Springs 10 years ago. My tenure on the science cadre is over so maybe Iâ€™ll make more tech conferences in the coming years.
