Last month was a busy one for me in Education. I gave the keynote for Indiana School Boards Association & Indiana Public School Administrators Association, New Hampshire School Administrators Association, Virginia Association of School Superintendents Region VIII, and spoke to students at Ben Davis University High School in Indiana.
This week I head to Milwaukee to address the Milwaukee Area Technical College as well as local high school. Thank you to Britannica who helped make each of these possible through our ongoing partnership.
