End of Conference Dinner

Tonight we collected everyone together again and celebrated the end of the ISTE Conference at JCT Kitchen in Atlanta. We had all gone our own ways in the massive GWCC complex for several days while we followed our own professional interests. Tonight was a night to share the things we’d seen and learnt, as well as try some authentic “southern comfort food” like grits, fried chicken, fried oysters and rum-sopped coconut cake. The conversation was animated and peppered with the kind of banter and good-natured cheek that defines a successful blend of personalities and great collegiality. It was rewarding and satisfying for the AISWA staff to hear that everyone felt they had really benefitted from – and enjoyed – the Study Tour. It has been a genuine pleasure to travel with such a happy, personable, capable and supportive group! Roll on “Microsoft Day”!

After a week of lectures on the rewards of risk-taking it was time to try "grits" for the first time. Some did better than others! Well done, IMS.
