California here I come!

I'm packing my bag now and know I won't be able to sleep, because tomorrow morning I leave for California. I am among the leadership team at my school attending the America's Choice National Conference in Hollywood, CA.

It's always energizing to attend a conference that you know will bring you new thoughts and ideas, but I'm thrilled to say our whole leadership team is blogging the conference. We will be bringing real time learning to our own faculty as well as friends around the world.

Many of our risk-taking team members will be blogging for the first time and have even agreed to give twitter a try - so catch up with what we're doing at

We can't wait to hear what you think!


Good luck at the conference Melanie! We have been putting the students' poetry up on our new blog:

Hi Melanie,

Sounds like you all arrived safely, thank goodness. I am very excited for you and wish you and the rest of the team the best of luck. I can't wait to learn more from you!

Enjoy the journey,

Hi Melanie,
I am so excited for you to travel to Hollywood! I know that you are going to learn many great things, and I will be following all of you on your blog and twittering with you. I can't wait for you to share your knowledge. I told Vickie that I would be her "mama" while you are gone. She liked hearing that since she misses you. I will take great care of your "baby girl" because she is my baby girl, too. Have fun, stay safe, and learn a lot!
