Very exciting news! The next Google Teachers Academy has been announced and it's going to take place in Chicago. If you're not familiar with the GTA concept, it's a day of training for innovative educators at Google's Chicago office. 50 participants will be selected from a pool of applicants, and they will join the ranks of almost 300 Google Certified Teachers world-wide. Anyone can apply and attend as long as they can take care of travel arrangements. It is not just open to Chicago area teachers! I will be helping Mark Wagner, Cristin Frodella, and Allison Merrick run this event, and I am thrilled to be part of this team. FYI, another GTA will be coming to New York City in November; the date has not been announced just yet. For more info, click on the image below!
