It was because of networking opportunities on the conference Ning that I met my mentor, Cory Plough. He was a conference veteran and helped me figure out how to find sessions and manage my time so I could make the most of ISTE. Without his help I would have been completely lost. My first ISTE experience had a significant and lasting impact on my career. One of my passions is helping first time ISTE attendees feel that same connection and energy.This year I was asked by ISTE to help with a new area called the Newbie Lounge. It will be located on the 3rd floor Mezzanine. The idea is for this to be a welcoming space for conference newcomers where they can hang out, network, and get advice without feeling like a Newbie. Please say hi if you see me and remember to relax and enjoy the conference!
