Hodges Hits the Road

Just wanted to write a quick post to let you know about two trade shows we’ll be attending in the next few weeks.  This weekend (3/26-3/28), we’ll be in San Francisco meeting with education professionals at the ASCD Annual Conference & Exhibit Show.  Two weeks later (4/8-4/9), we’ll be attending the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) 90th Annual Convention & Expo in Tampa, Florida.

Know a teacher, principal or other administrator who’s attending?   We love to meet friendly faces of both new and current customers. Tell them to stop by for free samples of our scholastic awards and a chance to win a Hodges Badge Company gift certificate.

A Look Back at the ASCD Conference in San Antonio

In early March, Rochelle and I headed to San Antonio to take part in the ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) Conference and Exhibition.  Besides reminding ourselves to speak slowly (hey- it’s Texas and we are a bunch of  ‘fast talkin’ Easterners’) we had a great time speaking to teachers, principals, and school administrators from across the country and around the world.

We showed off our rolls of ribbon, medals, and the popular Field Day and Honor Roll multicolor ribbons.  Teachers were impressed that our prices enable even those on a tight budget to give an award to a deserving student.

Outside of the conference, we had fun visiting the Alamo, strolling the Riverwalk,  taking a Riverboat tour, and generally being tourists.   Scroll down for the fun stuff… the pictures!

Can you find us? I gave you a little help.

Our Riverboat guide, who was from Missouri....hmm...

They do things a little differently in Texas!
