While attending the conference I was able to reconnect with many friends who have been kind and supportive, sit in on some great sessions, and hear some inspirational keynote speeches.
Unfortunately I missed my own award ceremony in Indiana. I was awarded a Jacobs Educator Award however an overnight trip at this point in Mr. Fuglestad's recovery didn't seem wise. I hope to connect with them in the Spring. You can view my video submission for the award in this former post. I just saw that the date it was posted. It was only days before the accident that changed everything. But, the world keeps going, kids keep on growing, and thankfully bodies keep on healing. We hope to be back as soon as we can.
