Changing of the Seasons Brings Changes for the Professional Journey

The beautiful Fall season is upon us and November has brought some of the most beautiful sights and scenes of the year in Brownsville, MN. This is the time of year that over 30,000 tundra swans, snow geese, wood ducks and mallards are enroute on their migration journey to the south. We are very fortunate that our home location is right on the path of their dedicated migration route. These beautiful creatures stop over to "rest and refuel" in the newly created protective habitat area- before they take off to endure another 1500 miles of their journey.

Here are some photos and video clips of these magnificent birds.



With the changing of the seasons brings changes for my professional Innovative Educator Consulting business. The past year I have hired a administrative assistant, the one and only Miss Kim Berg. I was so fortunate to hire her, and the best part is- I have known Kim for over 8 years, because she was my program assistant I originally hired at my past technology director job. Kim does a tremendous and thorough job keeping all the ed tech grant work organized, communication for setups for training events, creation of marketing flyers and promotional materials. She is a huge asset to my company and my branding presence.

Another positive change that has occurred this month, is that I have hired a network administrator specializing in PC infrastructure technical support and security, 1:1 PC tablet deployment with Google apps and Windows Skydrive, and background knowledge in videography and webinar development. I am thrilled to have Jeff Harm join my educational technology consulting company to be "my network specialist and technical trainer" while supporting my 1:1 training initiatives, technology integration workshops and global webinar events.

 
Change is good- it needs to occur often just as the seasons change, to keep an individuals learning platform and presence vibrant, creative and filled with new innovative ideas to share the collective intelligence while continuing to build and grow the collaborative partnerships!
