Vegas Teacher Blogger Meet Up!

Oh my goodness, I cannot even adequately express how honored I am that I got to be a part of the Vegas Teacher Blogger Meet Up!  My friends have organized it for the past three years, but this was my first year as an "event planner" so to speak.  It was so much fun working together to accumulate tons of fun prizes, but it was SO much more fun meeting everyone in attendance.  It honestly blew me away to see a room so stuffed with passionate educators.  I seriously get a little teary eyed when I think about teachers giving up their precious summer vacations to network and attend conferences to keep growing and adding to their proverbial tool belts.  It made me all goose-bumpy being in a room FULL of people just like that.  For real. It's such a neat experience when you can literally FEEL the energy that permeates through the space.  I'm an emotional girl... if you couldn't already tell.  ;)

In all seriousness, I am so glad that I was working by the door passing out raffle tickets because it was a packed house!  I actually got to meet people as they shuffled in through the door, and although I was slightly concerned that I would lose my voice before presenting the next day, and although I did feel a little bit like a broken record, it was all 100% worth it.  I had SO much fun chatting with everyone and putting faces with names and blogs.  Thanks for coming, friends!  I am already looking forward to next year!

We took over 200 pictures of the event and there's no way to showcase them all, but here are a few snapshots of the night.

It was so fun getting to meet some of our online bloggy friends for the very first time! Plus, we got to meet so many teachers from all over the country - we even had teachers from across the world!!
(Shout out to our friends from Spain and Australia!)
