I'm still alive!

This has been a really hectic year for me. This year, I'm teaching both Dual Credit U.S. history as well as AP U.S. history. The AP test has changed, and it's also the first year for me to teach it since 2010. On top of that, I've been continuing to attempt to at least partially flip my classroom, adding a significant online component to both my preps. On top of that, I'm serving on multiple committees at my school that entail numerous after-school meetings each week. The result of all this is that I've been way too busy to keep up with this whole trying to be a professional development consultant thing. I am still working on keeping up with professional development, though. I've presented at a few professional development conferences in my district and at TCCA in Aldine last fall.

And if you happen to be reading this on the day I post it, I'll be presenting tomorrow at the Houston Google Summit at the Village School. My presentation will cover If you can't make it there, you can come say hi to me at the Texas Google Summit in Frisco, Texas on May 14th. I won't be presenting at that one, but I will be helping to organize and run it. Thanks for dropping by. I'll try to improve my updating habits.

Bonus Picture Time:
My son and I almost share a birthday (I'm April 2nd, he's April 5th). For our birthday, my wife took us to the Johnson Space Center in Houston. Here we are with my mom, taking a family selfie in front of a Saturn V rocket.
