It's been a wild, wild year for me. Earlier this week I was honored as one of NSBA's 20 To Watch and in June I was one of the cable industry's Leaders in Learning recipients. The George Lucas Educational Foundation said it loves my blogs and today I am being honored as one of Phi Delta Kappa's Emerging Leaders. I am a little overwhelmed at all of the attention (three national awards in one year is a bit crazy!) but I do appreciate the recognition of the work we're doing here at CASTLE. My new institution, Iowa State University, had a really nice story on me (the news service reporter said I was a walking op-ed!). It's fun to be at a place that appreciates my work.
I can't attend the awards ceremony today at PDK's Global Summit in Vancouver, British Columbia. Why? Because I'm winging my way to San Antonio, Texas to keynote Miguel Guhlin's technology leadership seminar. It will be great to see Miguel again and, knowing Miguel, I'm guessing that he may have a few surprises in store for me!
