Yep, plans don't always work out, that's for sure. My plan was to talk with 20-30 people about the box project while at a math conference in Minneapolis.
Well, one participant showed up. But, in the same way that all these God moments have happened, with no control or forcing from me, the one participant happened to be from Concordia University in Mequon. Yep, we both drove 300 or so miles from the Milwaukee area to a conference in Minneapolis, only to run into each other in this conference room. Pretty cool.
I didn't actually take it as a God moment at first, because I was a little disappointed at the turnout for my workshop. But meeting Nicole was great and we had a wonderful discussion. She was impressed by the boxes of my students, took photos and handouts, and is going to try it with her pre-service college students.
Plus, she won a free book as a door prize, since no one else was in the raffle for it!
Great to meet her and hope to work with her down the line. I'll help in any way I can. Learned some good things myself this weekend too. Excellent conference.
Blessings to everyone. XO
