In her keynote presentation, Sarah challenged us to look backwards as a way to look ahead.
The present is a gift, the past has passed, and the future is what is to come. Let's time travel and reminisce on our first days of teaching. What has changed? What lessons might we learn from our past, and how might this inform our future? Take a trip with Sarah Thomas on this magical journey that discusses the power of reflection and community, edtech trends over the years, and...fanny packs?
