Today I got the opportunity to make some new friends in Escambia County. I had a great time at the ESOL Youth Leadership Conference and learned quite a bit from the experience. Thanks again for allowing me to come in and share some ideas on leadership, technology, and service learning. As promised, here is the outsourced memory of our sessions today.

Using the plastic bottles to engineer solar stills while studying water conservation is learning
When students and teachers combine a local environmental clean up with a classroom build, documented results, and an awareness campaign, that is Service Learning.
