month we have been furthering our international reach. We have
been working with the State of Colorado Import/Export Office to make
connections with schools and companies around the world interested in
online content for elementary and high school students. The World
Trade Center - Denver has occupied much of my time as I learn about
requirements, documents and certificates to increase our exposure
internationally. It has been busy and exciting. And, I am
learning much that I would not have known, had the opportunity not
been available. Knowledge Headquarters was chosen as one of ten
companies in Colorado to participate in a Global
Opportunities program offered by the State. We are the
only company focused on e-learning. The program has provided us
a platform to share with others the value of innovative online
I recently read an
article about how our children shape us. We traditionally
consider our role as parents to be the ones who shape our
children. Yet upon consideration, think of how your life has
changed since children. Their personalities and attitudes demand
we alter our lives to accommodate their own growth and development.
This has been birthday month in our family as both of my sons were
born in October. And while they are both adults now, I spend the
month each year reflecting on their years with me....what I would have
done differently, how I would have changed things to make growing
easier. But we can't go back. It helps me to consider that
I am a better person because of them....they taught me; they worried
me; they made me happy; they filled my days. They shaped me in
ways in which I am not even aware....I am a different and a better person
because of my sons. We are blessed to be shaped by our children.
Oh, I feel it in the air
today....cooler days....the cold is coming! It has been a gorgeous
Fall in my part of the country. The cycle of change in the seasons
reminds us that experiences are fleeting and change will happen
whether we want it to or not.
Happy Fall, my friends.
The Hour of Code is a grassroots
movement that has introduced 100 million students to the
basics of computer science. Your students can participate with any one-hour coding
activity that they will love ó no experience needed!
Computer science is foundational for
every 21st Century student. Most instructional programs still donít
teach it. We owe it to our children to start with just one hour.
Details can be found at the Hour
of Code website. We think this is an opportunity for all students
to spend one hour learning the basics of coding. Every young person
deserves to learn how to build technology that will impact everything
in the future.
