After a few weeks of waiting, I received the email that I was accepted to Google Teacher Academy! I have tried to stay low key about the whole thing with a lot of inner whisperings and hoping.
I can't wait to learn from the great educators that will be there and from the Google team. I know of some great people who have been to the Academy, namely Vicki Davis and Kevin Jarrett.
