The theme of the conference is “Reimagine Explore And Discover” and I have done all of those things! This journey has stretched me in ways I could only have imagined a few years ago. I have developed a business sense, grown in confidence, redefined my place in the educational world, and discovered hidden talents within myself that I didn’t know existed. Although I don't think I would want to repeat the experience, I am so glad I took on the challenge.
I have many, many friends who served on my committee and have helped and supported me along the way. This has given me a renewed understanding of the value of friendship and how much people are willing to give of themselves.If you are one of them – thank you.
We are ready! If you want to know more about the conference, go to www.ksrapa.org.
I hesitate to start naming people for fear of leaving someone out, but I am looking forward to seeing and learning from Linda Hoyt, Kate Messner, Clare Landrigan and Tammy Mulligan, Michael Salinger and Sara Holbrook, Janet Wong, Jen Bryant, Kevin Flanigan, Jane Feber, and many more!
Stayed tuned for Part 2 next week – After the Conference.
