I’m headed to Seattle!
One of my professional goals has always been to attend the National Journalism Conference in either the fall or the spring. After some research and the encouragement of my principal, I’ve registered for the April conference. This year’s spring location is Seattle.
After I get a taste of the conference this year (and determine if it’s worth it), the goal will be to take a group of students along next year.
I’m looking forward to connecting with a lot of other journalism advisers, learning more about how other schools balance both a school newspaper and a news website, and what I can I do to better encourage my students to embrace the changing world of journalism.
The conference will pack a lot into four days, but there is some free time to take in the city. I’ve never been to Seattle, so let me know what I should do/see while I’m there.
