Council for Exceptional Children in Macon, Georgia

Saturday, March 10th, 2007

The Council for Exceptional Children invited me to their Georgia Conference where they had 300 in attendance from across the state. As their keynote lunch speaker I reminded them the power each of them have to make a difference in the life of a child. The crowd was very receptive as heads where shaking like crazy as I think they agreed with what I was saying. The event was well organized and it was an honor to be there. If you haven’t been involved with the Council for Exceptional Children and you are a teacher, you might want to learn more! Thanks to Mike and Linda Weinroth for their hospitality! (Pictured Above)

Lexington, Kentucky and the Kentucky Wildcats!

Saturday, March 10th, 2007

Here I was the Keynote to open up the conference. I spoke to over 800 speech teachers. This was the 50th anniversary of KSHA-Kentucky Speech-Language-Hearing Association Conference. What a great event and great people in attendance. This conference was well run and I really enjoyed sharing my story. I knew they enjoyed it as at the end, a standing ovation was given. As a perk, I was able to see the Kentucky Wildcats play basketball in Rupp Arena. What a trip! Basketball is a life long tradition in Kentucky and it was great seeing the Wildcats get a win at home!
