Every Saturday, join me as I CELEBRATE This Week
with Ruth Ayres from Discover. Play. Build.
I'm so grateful for the NCTE annual convention every year because I get to connect with friends who feel like family. It's an opportunity to learn from people who push my thinking and to rejuvenate. I have so many ideas after NCTE that I'm excited to make happen.
Here's a recap of all the wonderful people I connected with. By the end of the conference, I left knowing that I carry their hearts with me and that's pretty amazing.
Jennifer Sniadecki and Jeff Anderson!
Lynda Mullaly Hunt!
Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Matt De La Peña!
Of course, even though I took all these pictures....there were still others who I didn't take pictures with who also impacted me like Pernille Ripp, Donalyn Miller, Katherine Hale, Jessica Lifshitz, Kristin McIlhagga, John Scovill, Brian Wyzlic, Katherine Sokolowski, Travis Crowder, Ruth Ayres, to name a few.
NCTE, thank you! You rock! I can't wait until next year. I'm already counting down the days.
