A day away...

Today you won't see a post from the kids of Room 9 as I am away at a meeting all day. They are spending their day with Ms. Koehn, our very favourite substitute! The meeting that I'm attending today is a bit of a new experience for me. I was asked to be a part of a conference planning committee for a big educational technology conference happening in Winnipeg in 2014. I was a bit nervous before I arrived as I had taken a look at the list of other committee members and wondered why I was included in the group. (Of course, I Googled them, because that's just what I do.) I found out that I would be sitting around the table with superintendents, consultants, and presidents and executive directors of a variety of educational associations. Needless to say, I was feeling quite nervous about the day. However, I very quickly reminded myself how often I ask my students to try new things that are outside of their comfort zone, and how they step up to the challenge each and every day. Teacher becomes student...again :)
