2017-07-31 – A Whole New World

Technically I started back to work last week, and this week we begin the welcoming party for the new teachers. I am very happy and excited about the start of another school year and it’s going to be amazing fun and learning. The introductions were fast, furious, and empowering. The highlight, for me, was the Breakout EDU session as the team of 42 new teachers and a collection of our district admin worked together to breakout with almost ten minutes remaining.

In particular, I enjoyed adding some of the new locks and creating new clues for the review of some of the learnings, some front loading of learning, and some connections to the district. It was an amazing bit of fun and I think we have some converts looking forward to our district training on this concept.

A quick moment that makes me laugh every time, every moment, and I can’t get enough of it. If you saw the Disney film Moana, it was epic, and my favorite movie character ever was introduced to me. Here’s a short moment, and here’s the fun part

Enjoy, I know I sure am.

The first day back to work and I’m so stoked to start the new school year with IpadpaloozaCA and the opportunity to learn and get better together struck twice with both keynote speakers Dave Burgess and Carl Hooker. Both gentlemen are incredible speakers, fun, entertaining, and knowledgeable.

Meeting one of my eduheroes is the most exciting events in life.

Dave inspired us to create learning experiences for our students and to add a little edupropane to our teaching because we need to preheat the edugrill. What a wonderful experience and so fantastic being able to accomplish my dream.
