Recently, I was lucky enough to be featured on the front page of the local paper, the Merced Sun-Star. It was a great opportunity to be able to share information about attending the Google Teacher Academy in London as a Lead Learner (presenter). I was also able to share how I have been able to include technology in my agriculture courses at Le Grand High School, including Agriculture Earth Science and Agricultural Communications, a ROP course.

To my surprise the article has been republished more than once on the internet. It was an editor's pick for the ASCD Smart Brief and also posted on a blog site sponsored by the National Young Farmer Educational Association (NYFEA) - Agriculture's Promise. It has been a great way to build my PLN with other Agriculture Teachers from around the country.
I would like to thank Nathan Quevedo, Public Information Officer for MCOE for sending out a press release and Jamie Oppenheim for writing a very nice article. Here is the full article from the Merced Sun-Star's website.
