MEA-MFT Educators' Conference

It is hard for me to believe that a week ago I was in Montana presenting at the Montana Education Association and Montana Federation of Teachers (MEA-MFT) Educators' Conference. I am so excited that the Montana School Counselor Association invited me to be a keynote speaker and presenter for the conference. A HUGE THANK YOU to Alicia Godfrey for showing me a great time in Bozeman!

My keynote titled You Are Not Alone: Connecting Through Social Media was about how school counselors can utilize Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and blogs to communicate with other school counselors professionally and create a professional learning network.

I also presented two breakout sessions at the MEA-MFT Educators' Conference. In my session Blogging in 5 Easy Steps I explained the benefits of blogging as a school counselor and showed participants just how easy it is to create a blog and start posting. In my session Tech Savvy School Counseling, I shared various technology tools that school counselors can utilize for professional development and to enhance their school counseling program.

I had a excellent time talking to Montana school counselors and sharing tech tools and tips with them!

Montana is so beautiful! I couldn't get enough of the snow-capped mountains! To see more pictures from my trip follow me on Instagram

While at the MEA-MFT Educators' Conference I learned some great information from other presenters. I created a Twitter hashtag to catalog the tweets I shared during the conference. I made my tweets into a Storify below so that you can access the links and resources I shared even if you don't have a Twitter account.

Right after the MEA-MFT Educators' Conference, I headed to Denver, CO to present at the ACES Conference with my doctoral cohort. It was a whirlwind weekend!
