OAME Conference: Proposal Submitted

Been pretty busy and haven’t been blogging much.

Last week, I was on a whirlwind tour with the Grade 11s. We zipped through Ontario and Quebec, checking out post-secondary options and wandering around on college campuses. It’s been quite exhausting but I’m hopeful that the visit “down south” will inspire students to work hard towards graduation.

Tonight, I finally put in a submission for the annual OAME conference. I initially got a go-head by the co-chair of the conference back in September, but had been procrastinating until now. The deadline is November 30th, so I finally strapped myself done and got ‘er done tonight. The conference will be happening in May 2017 in Kingston, Ontario. I’m glad the proposal process is pretty short, because it really only took me about 10 minutes to finish it.

I won’t say too much about it, other than that the title is “Finding the Way Through the James Bay”. I don’t have it fully worked out yet, but would like to share some Desmos Classroom Activity in there somewhere! I requested a 75-minute session.

Also, I wanted to mention that one of my favourite financial bloggers, Gail Vaz-Oxlade will be there!! I really hope to meet her and say hello! Maybe even take a picture with her?!?! There is an amazing interview with Gail that Jessica Moorhouse featured on Mo’ Money Podcast.
