Hello ICTM members!  I wanted to introduce myself as the new Regional Director for the Heartland AEA.  My name is Callie Budden and my first experience with ICTM was as the student director during my time as an undergrad at University of Northern Iowa from 2007 to 2008.  Being student director was a fantastic learning and growing experience for me and since then I have loved participating in the annual fall conference as often as I can.  I currently work in the Urbandale School District and reside in Ankeny.  This had made getting to the fall conference much easier in recent years and I always look forward to the ever evolving presentations, collaboration, and learning opportunities put together by all the fantastic educators around the state.  I am very excited to once again be a part of planning this year’s conference and serving the Heartland AEA.  Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments.  I am looking forward to Fall 2017 and hope to see you all there!
