I received notification from Tamara Bishop-Amavilah, Arizona AER President, that AZ AER is now accepting presentation proposals for their 2017 Spring Conference on March 31st at the Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind in Tucson, AZ. I informed her that I have a pending training for teachers and administrators at Beaumont ISD in Beaumont, TX during the week of March 27-31. I am very excited about both opportunities to share my teaching strategies in Arizona and Texas. I wish I could do both!

The Texas Assistive Technology Network is having their 2017 TATN Conference on June 13-14 at the Region 4 Education Service Center in Houston, TX. In June 2012, my wife and I made it a point to attend their conference. We loaded up the Honda Odyssey with some manipulatives and headed to Houston for our first conference. We were so impressed with the enthusiasm of the attendees as well as all of the amazing assistive technology devices on display. We had to make some time in out schedules to attend this year. See you there!
