Remember this post?
Well, I was selected to be a New Media Consortium K-12 Ambassador. Here's the official press release for posterity.
To be honest, I feel like I've joined the Justice League and won Miss America all at the same time!
Being a part of this incredible group of crazy-talented individuals is truly a dream come true. Working together, we can amplify our voices to reach a broader global community, utilize our individual strengths to foster meaningful change, and build upon our crazy ideas to help combat wicked problems facing our educational system and prepare our students for an unknown future.
This journey will no doubt be challenging, but I know that the NMC is full of my people. I have no doubts it will provide me with countless opportunities to learn, connect with others, and stretch my thinking in ways I never thought possible. Many thanks to my family, friends, and Twitter PLN who not only helped me realize this goal but have supported me in ways I cannot even comprehend. I am so grateful for this opportunity to make my mark on the world and I can't wait to see where it takes me.
