2007 Missouri Academy Educator Appreciation Banquet
Tonight I had the pleasure of speaking at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri at the Missouri Academy Educator Appreciation Banquet. The Missouri Academy is an amazing program in which high school students take college courses on the campus of Northwest University and graduate with a high school diploma as well as an associates degree.
The Educator Appreciation Banquet is an opportunity for the students attending the Academy to say thanks and formally recognize a teacher who has made an impact on their life. After eating a delicious meal and learning more about the program from several students, I gave a presentation on the use of technology in today's classrooms using Web 2.0 tools.
It was a great evening and I enjoyed my first visit to the campus of the Northwest. Special thanks to Robert Bryant Jr. and Dee Dino of Northwest.
