Well, I just found out that I am an "Incredible Featured Adobe Educator" at the NCCE 2-13 Conference held in Portland, Oregon, February 26 - March 1, 2013. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I submitted my proposals for Adobe InDesign and Adobe Dreamweaver. I certainly didn't expect to be a "Featured.....Educator." Not exactly sure what my schedule is yet, but it looks like I will be teaching an Introduction to Adobe InDesign on the morning of Wednesday, February 27th.While I know I shouldn't be nervous because I have probably taught hundreds of classes to adults and teachers, but this does make me a little nervous, I have to admit. I know I will do fine, it is just getting this kind of attention makes me nervous. I am, however, really looking forward to it and plan to help out in the Adobe booth, which is always fun and a great learning experience. If you are interested more in what this conference is about, check out the Advance Program - specifically check out page 15. I am excited to see that after all these years of attending workshops held by Joe Dockery, I am listed right beside him in the program. This is quite an honor, I have to say. I have always admired his work and am always inspired by his workshops. I hope to provide the same for the people that attend my workshop.
This summer I attended ISTE 2012 in San Diego, CA. I attended Linda Dickeson's Adobe InDesign workshop. She gave out books that she had written which I thought was great - because if I missed something in the workshop, I had a reference to go back to. Linda recently updated her InDesign book to InDesign CS6. I am hoping that I will be able to use her books at the NCCE conferece. I really like the idea of supporting a fellow AEL (Adobe Education Leader) and being able to provide a great resource for students. More on this topic, as I learn more. Have to say, I am very excited, even though a little nervous, about this endeavor.
