I am excited and honored to once again present at the ITIP Ohio Summit Featuring Google for Education (#ITIP15) in Sandusky, Ohio this May 14th and 15th. I always look forward to this opportunity to see old friends, make new friends, share some ideas, and learn so many new things from others.

Below is a list of sessions I will be presenting at this year's ITIP Ohio Summit, along with any associated resources. Please feel free to join me for any of these sessions. I look forward to sharing, learning, and chatting with you!

Stop by for just a few minutes to get a quick tip or spend more time as you move from table to table.
