It’s bright and early, the car is gassed up, and it’s mid-March – must be time for the annual CUE Conference in Palm Springs. This year I am excited to be taking two smart colleagues from Natomas Charter with me – Jeanne Feeney (@MamaFeenz) and Josh Landry (@JLandryPix). So, if you see one of us in a session or networking in Palm Springs, pop on by and say hello…or just introduce yourself on Twitter (I’m @ucdjoe). While in Palm Springs I plan on teaching a little bit, so if you came to one of my workshops feel free to check out the resoures below and let me know if you have any questions.
