Luckily, I spent the week with two of my most trusted teacher friends. Suzanne from Krazytown and Meghan from Oh Boy Fourth Grade. After living in separate cities for two years, we were like girls at summer camp staying up WAY TOO LATE in our PJs (or muu muu...). I feel so fortunate to have met so many kind and wonderful teachers. The energy was contagious throughout the week! I am definitely not shy, but it does take effort and persistence to put yourself out there to meet strangers. By the flight home Saturday, here were some things I wrote down as I thought about the trip.
This was definitely a high-energy event, and the constant stream of information combined with networking is not for the faint of heart. You have to be willing to step outside your comfort zone and get to know other content creators. You also have to be willing to hear tough advice from friends. I appreciated each person who took the time to ask my name and about my blog. I left the conference with a much clearer picture of what I want to do as a edublogger and teacherpreneur in the near future. I also left with a slight addiction to cronuts!!!
