    1. Three Conference Games People Will Actually Like Playing

      Three Conference Games People Will Actually Like Playing

      As a keynote speaker and a married guy, I’ve often compared conferences to weddings. In both cases there are hundreds of people to please.

As a first-year teacher, I also engage in various forms of “professional development” because, God knows, I need it.
