Amazing Things Do Happen

Last November 8th, I organized and attended Edcamp Ottawa. The highlight of my day that Chris Webb and James Petersen drove from Montreal to be there.

After an amazing day of learning from them, we went out for a drink to chat and catch up. They both encouraged me to apply to become a Google Education Trainer. I sort of laughed it off, thinking that there was no way that I would ever be able to get there. They pushed and offered to help me out if they could.

I decided to try to make my application but after reviewing it, I realized that I didn’t much training experience. I decided to wait, start training in my school and then apply later on.

I reached out to my school and noticed that staff was interested in learning about Google Apps for Education. So I set up a weekly time and a schedule we would cover. I covered Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Forms, Chrome Browser-Add Ons and Extensions, and Twitter.

After the trainings were done, I restarted my Google Education Trainer Case Study Application.

This week I found out that I had been selected to become a Google Trainer. I’m so excited for opportunitiesĀ to come! Amazing things do happen with support from amazing people like James, Chris, and Jeffrey Humphries!
