This week I am engaging in a professional development workshop. As I have shared, I love to learn. Professional development opportunities often provide me with great ideas and enthusiasm to bring back to my classroom. The best PD experience I have ever had was “Summer Ag Institute” a few years ago. This week-long adventure was unlike any learning experience I have been through as a teacher. We packed so much into the week and I enjoyed almost all of it – even sticking my hand in the stomach of a cow!
Time to share: What professional development experience do you recall with fondness? What aspect of PD do you enjoy the most (besides free food)? If you were to design a workshop for teachers, what would you want to include? What is your expertise you would be willing to share?
