Last week I spent two days at a conference about improving instruction. The speaker was energizing. She was a fun speaker with a wealth of information that I can use. The price of writing two days of sub plans was pretty steep, but wow! What a pay off! I returned home with concrete ideas to change my instruction. As we made the 100 mile round trip each day we had plenty of time to debrief and yes, laugh.
Today the learning continues, my book order was delivered a day early. I ordered her book on Amazon and I can't wait to dig in. The price of dusty end tables and unvacuumed rugs is steep, but I think it will be well worth the price.
