I am so excited to be a part of the UEA 2015 Convention as a presenter. I will be presenting two different sessions, so if you are in the Northern Utah area, stop by today or tomorrow for some great educational sessions about how to be a better educator with or without technology, although I prefer with whenever possible! If you aren't able to attend this great conference in person, feel free to attend digitally through the hashtag #UEA2015. There will be lots of information to learn, so follow along and join in the learning process.
