"We are our best resource."
I've said this for almost as long as I've been a teacher, and I say it because it's the absolute truth. I also say it as a reminder to myself and to others that we need to BE resources. If a colleague needs supplies, ideas, or even just a quiet place to vent, I enjoy being of service.
Speaking of service, this Summer I plan to host a Patio P.D. event for AMS staff and other interested district colleagues. It'll be my first such event, so I'm already telling myself that it will NOT go perfectly...but I'm excited and open to the chance to give educators and admins a comfortable setting in which to share information, discuss best practices, ask questions, and learn together about relevant topics.
Topics that I'd ideally like to explore during the Patio P.D. event include:
I'm relying on an interest survey (packaged nicely in a Google Form) to help me plan the agenda and harvest "presenters" for the event, and my goal is to host the event this Summer so that my colleagues and I have time to digest new information and figure out ways to apply what we learn to our various learning environments.
Wish me luck as I embark on a new pathway of my edu-venture with a Patio P.D. event!
