Mark Your Calendar – August Events

Some of you are already back in the classrooms, others are about to return, and yet others (like me) still have a month to go.  The beginning of August always marks the ‘end of summer’ in my mind and I start gearing up for the new school year.  I’m like a kid all over again, I get excited about new agendas (ready to fill with fabulous DEN Webinars), I’ve already bought a whole bunch of funky binders to put my various projects into, I’ve stocked up on my ‘signature’ purple pens, and I’m on the lookout for a new ‘school bag’.  In two weeks my office loft will be a maze as I attempt to navigate the various piles on the floor to get to my desk. 

In SL we’ve got some great Wednesday Workshops planned, some to share out, some to learn, and a MAJOR, MAJOR event on August 20th all of which will help to bring summer to a close.
