Staying Connected

Sam BStaying Connected

I don’t know about you, but ASTE has always been the highlight of my school year. The professional development offered, the sessions presented, and the connections made can fundamentally change how we educate. To this end let me encourage you to stay connected. If you have an old email from a new friend you made last February, drop them a line. Pull out your notes from sessions you enjoyed and revisit the concepts you were “wowed by”…

Something else you might have forgotten about are the opportunities you may or may not have capitalized on to share your thoughts on educational policy and funding. There are some pretty big changes this year.

Here are some opportunities and topics you might have seen come and go:
