A Year In Review…a Very Buff 2018

2018 is worth reminiscing about, but only for a HOT minute…Because 2019 is going to be “pedal to metal” awesome sauce! (Lots of planning and big ideas happening now!)

So here’s the hot minute: 

I got to meet so many NEW people in 2018, traveling all over the country doing something that I LOVE…helping educators do more with tech! We talked lots about innovation, edtech, the future, and “8th Grade Mustaches.” There was even a time when a group of teachers did the “Catfish Dance” with me!

Here’s some fun highlights from 2018!

  • Made my first trip to Alaska! Worked with a super fun group of teachers, saw friends (Yo Tyler and Carrie!), and hiked a glacier. *Please be praying for my friends and others in AK, as they were recently hit by a nasty earthquake. 
  • Continued my work with 15 AMAZING school systems in Northeast Georgia, So Much Fun!
  • Learned how to play Fortnite and lose within 3 minutes. 
  • Launched BrianKBuffington.com and added teacher tech tips, AKA “Buff Nuggets”!
  • Became a Homemade Hummus making champion. (It’s so good!) 
  • Broadcasted the 2nd Annual “A Parent’s Guide to Raising Digital Natives” event on Facebook Live. 
  • Recorded and released my song “The Alapaha Blues” (The Catfish Dance) on Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
  • Presented at the Future of Education Technology Conference in Orlando, FL…in January! 
  • Held the 2nd Annual “Camp Google” at Pioneer RESA in Cleveland, GA. A 2-day conference where teachers showcase creative student uses of Google Apps 
  • Mrs. Buffington joined the fun and is helping me spread my ideas and snazzy coat pictures all across globe. 
  • Made prescription glasses for the beautiful Kuna people of Panama. 
  • Took classes and got approved to become a foster home! Waiting on a call any day!

Enough of 2018.
Let’s bring on 2019. 

See you guys there!
