Remembering the Alamo

I was in San Antonio this week to teach a couple courses on social media and messaging. While I didn't say anything terribly earth-shattering, it reminded me how much I miss working in schools. It also makes me sad that tutoring is finished, and if all goes as planned with grad school, I won't be doing it again for a couple years.

I don't often post about my day job, but here's a little glimpse of my Clark Kent persona. Put me in a suit, an inch of makeup and some contacts, and I'm like an entirely different person. All professional like.
(Thanks to Wayne Sakamoto for the picture. It's a little hard to take a picture of one's self when one is speaking in front of a room full of people.)

Though the week was mostly work and no play, I did get a chance to see the Alamo, at least from the outside. The gardens were beautiful, a little like the bayou meets the desert. And it was hot and humid, just the way I like it.

I love being able to travel to new places and meet new people. Talking and sharing ideas and questioning ideology and suggesting ways to improve strategies--they're all the best part of my job.
