SOLSC 28/31 2012 PD Day!

I love professional development. I love going to workshops and listening to others talk about education. I like finding new strategies, techniques or ideas about education.
I try to stay current by attending as many workshops as possible, by reading professional publication, books and of course blogs. I love listening to others in education talk, share, and teach.  I like the feeling of being current and having growth in my profession.  I just like the “learning” of it all.
I don’t like attending workshops that waste my time, or bore me with things I already know, or ones that the presenter reads to me from the handout. I want my valuable time to be valued by them. I was worried that was how today was going to pan out. But it didn’t.
Today I attended “Practical Strategies for Meeting Rigorous Common Core State Standards for Reading.
The morning started a bit slow, but by the afternoon I had many items to add to my tool belt of classroom knowledge, and places to go to find further resources. And to top it off and make it all the more fun and worthwhile I got to spend the day with my bestest teaching buddy, and our two fun second grade teacher friends.   
I won’t give you a blow by blow tonight, but I will leave you with some websites (that are new to me), and a promise of things to come in the way of activities, ideas, and organization.
