This past week has been an incredibly rewarding week filled with professional learning at every turn! The week started out with the amazing staff of Dahlstrom Middle School as they discovered the beginnings about innovative classrooms and blended learning alongside myself, Tracy Mulligan, Eric Rodriguez, and Ann Debolt. I was inspired to find that these teachers are excited to embrace innovative practices and follow the lead of their new principal Dr. Watson.
That led to my favorite part of the week when the librarians and library technicians in my district returning to learn at LibraryCon 2017.
I cannot even begin to tell you how fun this group is and just how precious they are to me! This group laughed, learned, dialogued, and shared their hearts, knowledge and expertise all around the room. They even offered me prayers when I was forced to leave after receiving bad news about my father in Houston. (Thankfully he’s doing alright as of this writing, but prayers are still needed as we learn more.)
As you go back to school, make sure you give some love to your librarian and invite them to help you plan engaging lessons and amazing experiences in your classroom!
And now, I’m working on (and looking forward to) next week’s learning! Look at all of this awesomeness to come! And make sure you follow the hashtags of all the events.
