MaineEd08 - Evening

Okay, so those last three posts weren't exactly Linux related but they were definitely technology learning. And they'll be a few more posts tomorrow from the rest of the conference. The annual ACTEM conference is amazing - its engaging, inspiring, connecting, learning, and as this year's Maine Friend of Technology put it, "It's all about the kids." The award winner was Floyd Calderwood. He worked at Hampden Academy for 34 years and did ground-breaking work with Apple and is known for exceptional professional development presentations.

The ACTEM Maine Teacher of the year is Leah Tondreau Welch. Currently, she is teaching first grade in Hampden. Leah did her student teaching at the Asa C. Adams School with Sue Gauthier. Leah was a fantastic student teacher - she worked diagonally across the hall from me!
