#titleiconf draws to a close

Wow. I did quite a bit of thinking, pondering, and reflecting at the National Title I Conference the past few days in Seattle. I sat down tonight ready to share some of the things I learned / was frustrated with, but my brain seems to be dried up.

I will point out that Twitter was basically my savior for the conference. I Tweeted a whole bunch, and I met some pretty rad people in person.

My brief overall impressions? The keynotes were excellent, progressive, compelling, and frankly more radical than I thought the Title I folks would be. The sessions I attended were largely awful and overpopulated by people straight-up selling a product. The people I met were pretty cool, and the colleagues I attended with were infinitely inspiring.

More to come. I’m slinking off to bed to finish It’s Like This, Cat.
