Wanted to extend an enthusiastic THANK YOU to all of the fine teachers from the Fauquier County Public Schools for welcoming me to present at their Fall Equity Conference. Had a blast engaging with you and talking shop on ways that we can use game-inspired instruction to quite literally change the world of public education. My sincere thanks for taking time out of your busy Saturday schedule to hang out with me for a bit to learn more about all the cool ways we can better serve the needs of our students.
Presentation slides are embedded here. And you can click on the link below to snag a local copy for yourself on Google Slides if you’d like them. Likewise, if we touched base in person and you’re looking to follow up, just shoot me a quick email and I am happy to get you anything you might need!
