It's Over Too Soon
That was the headline in my Daily Herald this morning. I thought maybe they were talking about IL-TCE, but the picture of the sobbing basketball players told me different. People (usually fellow committee members and tech staff) often ask me what my job is with the conference and I am just as often tempted to answer "chief compliment collector." From the two keynoters, to the spotlighters, to the attendees and the vendors all I heard were wonderful things (except for the weather!) On a scale of 10 Dr. Larry Anderson gave us a 35 and one of his patented "It's aaaall goood!"
Planning has already begun for next year, but you can still reminisce or catch up on this year as soon as the podcasts, the archived videos, and classroom video contest winners are put up on the IL-TCE and ICE sites.
P.S. And a big congratulations to Tricia Fuglestad's 5th grade art students from Dryden School in Arlington Heights and Jessica Worst's 8th grade current events class from Barrington Middle School who won their grade levels in our video contest.
