You Know You're At A Teaching Conference When...

99.9% of all people there are women

The men's bathrooms at the hotel have been converted into Women's

You see more scrunchies than should be allowed

One out of every 100 people have hair passed their ears

Embroidered sweatshirts are the norm

You hear, "Wiggle your fingers, wiggle your toes, wiggle your shoulders, wiggle your nose, now all our wiggles are out..." as you walk by a session in progress

The one man you did see is knitting

Grown adults are getting excited about phonemic awareness


My teammate and I have spent the past two days at the CCIRA conference...a big deal if you ask me! We met some celebrities in the teaching world (Lois Lowry was there!), bought WAAAY too many books, but most importantly we are walking away feeling rejuvenated and empowered again. 

I have a million ideas to try and only 4 months of school left...

I have a lot of work to do
