Thank you #NCEA19!

Blown away by the Windy City #EDrenaline Rush!

NCEAXI

Humbled, grateful, and so incredibly pumped to have spent the morning changing the game in Chicago as part of the 2019 National Catholic Education Association annual conference. More than 300 educators packed into room W192b of Chicago’s McCormick Place as we took a crash course through all the crazy, messy, and exciting ways for teachers to adapt game-inspired lesson design for learners in any classroom.

Because enthusiasm is infectious. And we don’t teach content. We teach people.

It was crowded.

It was loud.

It was energetic.

It was wild.

It was messy.

And it was freaking amazing.
