Guest Post by Jennifer Brown – Reflections of E2

“Oh, you are going to E2?  It is a life-changing experience!”  From the day I learned I was going to Paris for Microsoft’s Educator Exchange conference, I heard that phrase in many ways, from many former attendees.  I would smile and nod and think, “How can a conference be life-changing?”  I mean, I’m getting to go out of the country for the first time in my life.  That’s pretty cool.  But, life changing?
