I corresponded with Jenny Wheeler, Desert Valley Regional Cooperative, about a possible demonstration when I am in Arizona during the week of March 26-30. She informed me that the 2018 Arizona AER Spring Conference will be in Phoenix on April 6th, and their 2018 Fall Arizona AER Conference will be on November 1-2. I had great time last year and met a lot of enthusiastic educators, but I cannot attend their conferences this year because I am still in the classroom. Maybe next year unless my schedule changes!

I want to take a quick minute to thank the specialists and teachers who attended my sessions in Columbia, SC and Charlotte, NC on February 7th. We had a great turnout, despite the rain!

Deana Bohannon, Parent to Parent of Georgia Regional Coordinator, has invited me to do a demonstration at the Senior Center on HWY 293 in Rome, GA on Saturday, February 17th for her monthly meeting for PAC (Parents of Autistic Children) monthly meeting.

You read it correctly! I have been invited to do demonstrations at two state AT programs on February 7th. My first demonstration is going to be at South Carolina Assistive Technology Program in Columbia, SC at 10:00- 12:00.

I received confirmation from Tammy Pereboom, Assitive Technology Specialist at the North Carolina Department of Health and human Services on February 7th at 3:00-4:00. Ms. Pereboom informed me that she is going to invite her colleagues at the North Carolina Division of Services for the Blind to my demonstration.

Nancy Jennings, Child and Youth Social Worker at the Center for Visually Impaired in Atlanta, contacted me today. She wanted me to demonstrate my teaching strategies on March 17, 2018 at 3:00- 4:00 with parents and students at her center. The original time was March 17 at 10:00 I stated to her that I would be able to share at that time. See you then!

I am going to be doing three “table talk” sessions at the 2018 International Learning Disabilities Conference in Atlanta. Because LDA has conferences all over the world and it will be held about an hour from me, I am looking forward this amazing opportunity to share my teaching strategies! I hope to see you there!

While I was at the 2017 GATE Seminar on December 8th, I met Tammy Wallace, Program Coordinator at the SC Assistive Technology Program.

I did a session at the 2016 Ed Camp and received great feedback from many teachers in NW Georgia. With statewide testing just around the corner, I hope that I can help a student before it is too late! See you at this year’s conference!
