FanGirl Friday: Alice Keeler

The first time I saw Alice Keeler's quote about three dots and a tiny triangle, about  I'm not gonna lie, I was a bit baffled.  See, I consider Alice to be the Queen of Google.  And she is the Supergirl of Sheets.  Which, continuing on this honesty streak, was my least favorite of the main G-Suite Apps.

Until I found Alice.

What Alice Keeler taught me about spreadsheets is nothing short of spectacular.  She is totally write, the answer is always a spreadsheet.  Seriously, there really is very little that you can't do in Google Sheets!  From pixel art to digital badges, from traditional spreadsheets to self-grading quizzes, Sheets really is a jack of all trades.

For a very long time, I fangirl'd Alice from afar - following her on Twitter, scouring her website for tech tips and tricks, downloading every app and extension she created.  The tech-tips I shared on Tech-Tip-Tuesday in our weekly staff memo can be credited to Alice's blogs.  In addition to being a top techie, Alice is a mother of five.  Yes, five.  And she teaches.  And is an author.

miGoogle Conference, November 2017
You can probably imagine my reaction when I found out Alice was coming to Michigan, to keynote the miGoogle conference in November 2017.  Yeah.  I was pretty stoked.  Like, bouncing in my chair excited.  If you EVER have a chance to hear Alice speak, take it.  You will leave feeling inspired, motivated, and excited to be a part of the incredible world of educators!
