I can't believe that we are already mid February. I began this month with an absolutely amazing, yet chilly trip to San Antonio for TCEA 2023. I met so many phenomenal educators there and this conference continues to be one of my favorites. It's a large conference with a small feel. I got to connect with many educators that I am connected with in person for the first time, reunite with some old friends and make many new connections.

One way to empower our students is to facilitate a student-led design process. Doing so will not only engage our students more but give them opportunities to be content creators in authentic tasks.
