Steven anderson1)      Complete this sentence: “Because of ASCD…”

Because of ASCD I am a better educator!

2)      What is your favorite “ASCD moment”?

My favorite ASCD moment happens every time I get to pick up an ASCD publication, talk to a member at Annual Conference, participate in a Twitter chat or learn from an ASCD author. The depth of knowledge in all those places is difficult to find anywhere else. 

3)      What is your favorite ASCD resource/publication/solution/event and why? 

My favorite ASCD event happens every year. Annual Conference! From having the honor of being in the presence of and learning from Maya Angelou to the conversations I’ve had with the leaders in our profession, Annual Conference never ceases to amaze me. The learning I do there with others is something I look forward to every year. 

4)      Why are you an ASCD member?

The learning I experience as an ASCD member has made me a better professional. There are so many ways for me to do more with my membership and participate in meaningful learning events that allow me to take my thinking and learning to a level I don’t think possible anywhere else.
