Building Learning Communities 2019

I am so excited to have the opportunity to attend the Building Learning Communities 2019 conference in Boston! A huge thanks to PBS KIDS and PBSMontana for this opportunity. As a PBS KIDS Early Learning Champion, I was given this opportunity to connect with and learn from educators from around the world at the BLC 2019 conference. Some of the topics I am most looking forward to digging into a little deeper are listed above, and I am super excited to learn from Carrie Baughcum and Kerry Gallagher, two people I've been learning from on Twitter for years! Looking forward to hearing from them in real life. :)  As I engage in learning at the conference, I will post resources into the Wakelet collection below.
