Google Teacher Academy - 8 days of waiting :)

I recently applied to the Google Teacher Academy that is taking place this May in Sydney, Australia. The mere excitement of the opportunity to apply for this great professional development session that will expand one's PLN and introduce one to several great educational technology tools is priceless. This will be the third time that I've applied for the program, and I feel that with each submission, I've gotten a little better. Below is my YouTube video submission on "Motivation and Learning" which is a step up from my last submission.

This leads me to my 7 days of waiting. Yesterday was Day One. It went by so quickly that the thought of running home to check my email only crossed my mind a total of 5 times, as opposed to the usual 20+ times. I can only hope that the events of this week (Gala, teaching, yoga, meetings, creating Tech Plan, blogging, and so much more) will create enough of a productive distraction from the anticipation of finding out whether or not I got in.
