David Zollo Wows 2011 Conference Attendees at All in the Family

IAAE members attend the annual State Conference to share ideas about curriculum, teaching, learning and dropout prevention. But those aren't the only reasons we attend. We also value the opportunity to network, socialize and share stories with colleagues who understand us better than anyone else--other alternative educators!

This year IAAE members had two opportunities for networking: first, in the Hospitality Room, sponsored this year by IAAE Board Members who graciously contributed snacks and beverages for all; and second at the Conference Social held at the All in the Family Lounge. This year's entertainment was Iowa native, David Zollo.

David wowed the audience with his soulful, bluesy style and his barefoot dancing feet. His music drove alternative educators and other All in the Family patrons to the dance floor for a night of fun-filled, soul-boosting music. David asked IAAE audience members, "So are you alternative teachers? or teachers of alternative students?" He obviously knows us well!

Check out David's Facebook page, his website http://davezollo.com/ and his YouTube channel for more information about his music, albums, and upcoming performances.
