MACUL Conference

As March peeks around the corner, anticipation mounts. It's more than just the month that brings in the promise of spring; it marks my inaugural appearance as a presenter at the upcoming MACUL conference, an opportunity that fills me with both excitement and a profound sense of responsibility.

MACUL, the Michigan Association of Computer Users in Learning, is dedicated to promoting the effective use of technology in education. Their annual conference offers valuable insights, resources, and networking opportunities for teachers looking to enhance their teaching with technology.

I'll be sharing how our school successfully developed a virtual field trip program for our students. From the early days of conceptualizing innovative approaches to virtual field trips to the whirlwind of preparations leading up to the conference, every step has been a mix of dread and anticipation.

Being selected as a presenter for the March conference is a milestone I never imagined achieving. It's an acknowledgment of the dedication and hard work that my fellow elementary colleagues have poured into our virtual school program, and a validation of the impact we have on our students' lives. But more than that, it's a celebration of the endless possibilities that await those who embrace technology in education.

As I prepare my presentation, I'm reminded of the countless educators who have inspired and guided me along the way. Their wisdom, passion, and unwavering commitment to their students have been a constant source of inspiration, driving me to push the boundaries of traditional education and embrace new possibilities in the digital age.

With each completed slide, I'm aware of the weight of this moment. It's not just about sharing our successes with virtual field trips; it's about honoring the students whose curiosity and enthusiasm have fueled our endeavors. Amidst the nerves and excitement, there's also a deep sense of gratitude for the opportunity to stand and share our journey.

But beyond that, there's gratitude for the chance to be part of a profession driven by a shared commitment to the betterment of our students and society as a whole.

As the conference approaches, I'm filled with a sense of anticipation and excitement. While I may be a first-time presenter, I am deeply honored to share our experiences, successes, and vision for the future of education with fellow educators from across the state. I can't wait to embark on this virtual journey together and see where it leads us next.
