I am so excited to announce that I am going to be presenting in Chicago this December at the CASE V conference. My last presentation was near and dear to my heart, but since I didn't choose to do it, it wasn't as real. This time, I created the proposal, I submitted it, I got it approved, and then found two amazing co-presenters.
In my time volunteering with the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, I feel like I have learned so much. I have learned how important it is to be involved in your community and how important it is to have pride in it. I believe I have succeeded in both.
Now my goal is for my work to match my personal life. Our presentation is an analysis of my work and my colleagues and different organizations as we try to retain our students in the region.
I can't go into all of the details because I would hate for anyone to steal our amazing plan, but I think this could be amazing. I think we could all use a little insight into how their communities and schools work.
