Happy First Day of Fall!

I had a lovely trip to Aroostook County on Thursday and Friday with  
the Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) team.  The light color  
made such an impact on the environment, it was lovely!  We  
participated in the Central Aroostook Council on Education (CACE)  
workshop day.  About 350 educators participated and had the choice  
from 32 workshops.  September in the county is beautiful!  Thank you  
to David Ouellette and the other educators who provided the  
opportunity for technology learning to take place and to the arts  
educators who attended my sessions.

If anyone has an item to donate for door prizes for our upcoming  
events please contact me!  I'd appreciate it!
