I awoke early on the first day of the Summit and drove to Charlottesville High School. Since it was a cold morning, I pulled on a knit hat to help keep my head warm, as my hair had not completely grown in yet. As I walked in, I met up with some friends who I hadn’t seen since before my diagnosis. Based on their enthusiasm, I could tell the weekend would be a great welcome back to the world of edtech.
It’s been a long journey back to EdTechTeam Summits. There’s a special kind of camaraderie between attendees that just can’t be replicated elsewhere. There’s another Summit in Virginia in August. You can bet I’ll be there, and this time I’ll stay the whole time (and with a full head of hair). *As a side note, I discovered the lump through a routine self-check. Guys, please do self-checks regularly, and ladies, remind the important men in your life to do them. It saved my life and it could save theirs.
