Moments That Take Our Breath Away

“Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” ~ Hilary Cooper

Thank you for another year of inspiration. Your support, participation, collaboration and sharing made 2013 momentous.

I am a goal-oriented person. Each year, I adopt a theme/vision and set goals, action plans, and keynotes that support this theme. In 2013, I adopted the theme, This is My Moment, which was also the theme for Cycle 4 of The 30 Goals Challenge for Educators. I was driven to push boundaries and improve the quality of professional development for teachers worldwide. This entailed developing materials and events that were affordable, valuable, and accessible. The achievements, which were highly collaborative, exceeded my expectations and resulted in me conducting over 60 presentations, workshops, and keynotes for over 10,000 teachers and students worldwide.

Projects and Achievements for 2013/2014

With the help of my Passionate Learning Network (PLN), I:

In addition to these projects, I was able to help teachers in Slovenia and Croatia integrate Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) and give workshops and keynotes in Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Nebraska, Las Vegas, San Antonio, New Jersey, Kentucky, Missouri, Washington, D.C., and in the UK.

Free 2014 Resources and Events

The average teacher will impact nearly 3000 individuals. That is why I believe so strongly in these projects. Without your help and support they wouldn’t be effective. I feel very blessed. As a token of thanks I have created this Resource page with links to various free materials and events,  Teacherrebootcamp.com/resources, or check out the embedded image below. I’ve also included a video of my 2013 moments. This is a mash-up of moments that were captured by Facebook, Google Plus, and Instagram. Create yours at http://www.intel.com/museumofme/ and http://statigr.am.
