Whew! What a day!
I forgot what it was like to attend a conference and to not have a minute to sit down. You convince yourself that you are going to get work done while you are here and then you end up even busier than you thought.
I find myself exhaustingly invigorated by the passion and the energy that surrounds teachers spending their own time to learn more about their craft.
Stepping out of your classroom to see other teachers who are trying to implement best practices does something for your soul.
You walk away knowing you are not alone and knowing that there are others in the trench next door.
That will hold you almost as well as the good food!
