Going To Calgary

I am going to the Smart SEE convention in July.  I entered the Smart SEE contest and luckily was just informed that I will be attending the conference with 50 other educators in July.  I am extremely honored and excited because I use my smart board 8 hours of every school day and I spend a lot of time developing interactive lessons with the tool kit.  I try to share with the other teachers in my district and hopefully I will learn a lot of new things this summer.

Is anyone else going?  If so, what are your expectations?  How do you use the smart toolkit?

Teachers as Master Learners

“What I want are master learners, not master teachers, learners who see my kids as their apprentices for learning.”

I enjoy my day with the students best on days where they are the active learners and they are mentoring each other and me.  It reaffirms why I am a teacher when I see students ask questions, make connections, and then teach another student.  When we model being life long learners then we are fostering the future.  Most days in the classroom are fun and learning takes place but on those special days when you can see the gleam in a students eye as they discover something for themselves and they are able to communicate it to someone else then I know that I am in the right profession.
