71 Days

What I did during my summer vacation…

Day 5: When are we professionally developed?

20130612-201359.jpgToday was my second day at the Charleston County Educator Symposium. Although I volunteered to attend from my school, as the day drew nearer, I wasn’t feeling the need to be professionally developed. I consider myself completely developed, but committed to going, so at 6:45 a.m. yesterday and  today, I enjoyed the scenic drive to North Charleston for lots of development. And guess what? I learned some new tricks, got revved up for the upcoming school year and enjoyed so much seeing teacher friends I don’t often get the opportunity to see.

I got to see and hear some fantastic, nationally-recognized speakers like 2012 National Teacher of the Year, Rebecca Mieliwocki (in photo), who pointed out what great jobs we have. I am so fortunate to do what I love every day. And I hope my students and teachers get the feeling that I love my job.

My mind is filling up with ideas for the new school year. I have a list of great books to read over the summer, and I’m looking forward to day 3 tomorrow followed by my book club with my favorite women! Woot Woot. Summer is starting off wonderfully.
