Well, we are all back from Captiva. It was such a beautiful venue for the conference. My hat is off the all the staff at the Florida Literacy Coalition for making it possible. Great work everyone!
This was my first Florida Literacy Conference and I really enjoyed it. The sessions I attended were very informative, especially Dr. Betsy Stoutmorrill’s session, Reading: Science of the Brain Meets Art of the Mind.
It was great to meet other people in the wider literacy world, too. It is really inspiring to know so many good people are out there fighting the good fight!
FLC blog readers, I hope you’ve enjoyed the Florida Literacy Conference as much as I have! What a great time it’s been at the South Seas Island Resort! Is there anywhere else (in Florida) that’s more beautiful? The palm trees, the beaches, the flowers…they were all amazing!
But I think what was even more amazing were the terrific conference participants who were here! I can only speak for myself, but my sessions were well attended and had energetic, enthusiastic people who were genuinely interested in the topics: technology, writing and math! Thank you for your participation and kind words.
I hope that no matter what sessions you attended, that they met (or exceeded) your expectations!
So, until we meet again at the next conference (May 4-6, 2011, Lake Mary, Fla.) keep on keepin’ on and doin’ the wonderful things you do!
