Faculty Academy is one of my favorite things about the summer. I love listening to the presentations, all the creative thought going on behind classes and projects.  It stirs my brain and gets me excited about this thing called “learning.”

It’s like a music festival, only about education and technology! So, a really geeky Bonnaroo!

This FA, I’m having as much fun as ever, though I’m faced with a question unusual to most of the participants: “What am I going to do with all this knowledge?” I’m not not a professor, teacher, nor am I currently pursuing a Masters or Ph.D. I’m not an ed-tech, and I doubt anyone would hire someone as unqualified to be one as me. I don’t know where I belong in this community; perhaps for now I’m meant to be floating along, soaking up the knowledge and debates like a sponge, and one day I’ll know what to do with it. I’ve always felt a bit at sea as to my place. I guess for now, I can be a happy participant and bystander, chipping in when I have something to say.
