Or at least Mom’s Best Friend.
On my behalf, Buddy was kind enough to put together a 1 minute video for the people at Google (which is all the more impressive when you consider he doesn’t have thumbs).
Because of his good work, I’ve been selected as 1 of 50 school administrators in the United States to attend The Google Teacher Academy for Administrators (I’m no marketing major, but shouldn’t it be “The Google Administrator’s Academy”). This is a free professional development experience designed to help K-12 educational leaders get the most from innovative technologies.
At least that’s what I’ve heard.
Basically, I’m going to get Googlized (I hope they’re gentle).
This is a win-win. I like Google and Buddy likes it when I’m not home.
There is only one downside. The conference is in San Antonio.
Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the chance to return to the home of the Alamo. And the mall next door to it (when visiting a national monument you may be overcome with hunger pangs and need a Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookie ).
But come on Google, you couldn’t splurge for a city with a beach?
In the time it takes me to write (?) this blog, Google has made about 47 bazillion dollars. At least.
When I think of that kind of money, I think waves. And not Google Wave.
I shouldn’t complain because I’m guessing Google had several applications for this conference (although only 1 by a talking dog), so I’m honored they invited me.
I’m also willing to bet that out of the 50 administrators less than 10 are superintendents.
Out of those 10, probably 2 have rambling incoherent blogs.
And only 1 of them has a semi-famous talking, YouTube video-making, wife-stealing dog.
How many people are thinking… I could have done a better video than that stupid dog. Well too bad, Buddy thought of it first. And to review, he doesn’t have thumbs.
