It was a great three days, and I got a lot of useful info, but my biggest takeaway was this.
I've spent the past few days at our state educator summit, and this was one of my biggest takeaways. If we're going to improve student learning, we need to create a culture of adult learning, where we feel comfortable talking to each other about issues, trust each other, and be willing to take risks and fail, and try again. We're all in this for the kids (or should be), so let's respect each other's ideas, be willing to admit when we're having issues, and help each other. #teachertruth #iamaneducatorandiamimportant #wecandothis #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #iteachtoo
Somehow, I've lost inches or some weight, and my pants aren't fitting very well anymore, so I stopped at LOFT outlet and picked up a new outfit!
I also ordered a new dress, using a gift card that I had from returning a last year.
Of course, I needed a new pair of shoes as well. :)
