Going Rogue at the ASHA convention!

I'm not great with rejection, and so when I learned that I was not picked to be an 'official ASHA convention blogger', my first reaction was disappointment.  (For those of you who don't know, ASHA is the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association which holds a huge yearly convention.)  Why wouldn't they want me to blog?  I could write about all kinds of topics---gluten-free convention snacking, Atlanta city geocaching, and Atlanta on 40 dollars a day----  (Hence the rejection!)

I love ASHA conventions and go whenever I can. They recharge me professionally, and cram my mind with ideas for working with my students.  Listening to presenters often validates what I already do!  The convention helps me to chart my course for the next few years. I learn about the latest in technology (my favorite).   My most recent convention was two years ago in Philadelphia---fairly close to North Carolina......but Atlanta is near us too, which is where the next one will be in November!     I'm attending, and I'm taking my laptop, camera, iPad, and whatever else I need to write about the fun times and great learning that goes on.......not 'officially' though.

So now, I'm blogging rogue.      Look for my postings in mid-November!   And congratulations to those who are official:
