NSBA Conference: Blogging School District Leaders

I had the distinct pleasure of helping present this session to a standing room only yesterday. (Some were even turned away at the door due to room capacity) The interest of among attendees was astounding and I'm looking forward to hearing from board members across the nation that will soon be starting blogs of their own.
The session ran very smoothly with plenty of time for questions and answers.

Consultant and freelance writer Craig Colgan, whose blog Municipalist discusses blogging issues, began the session with a wonderful overview. School board member Brian Wheeler, SchoolMatters, spoke next about this powerful tool. I spoke last about my journey through design, implementation, and adversity about my blog. Everyone was encouraged to use blogs as another way to communicate with parents.

Thank you, Ms. Abell! For the blog, and for promoting this tool as a means of communication to, and for, parents and taxpayers.
