Common Core Is A Journey...


I just came back from a week of common core training and my brain might be broken from using it so much. I am exhausted but ready to do a lot more reading on this and exploration under our district leadership. I stayed in a gorgeous hotel in Palm Desert and got a chance to bond with some of my district friends. We went to all the classes ( yup we are super goodies) that were offered and even got a new ipad. Yes, you read that correctly. That was a huge perk that still blows me away! The conference had tons of teckies to offer support and I learned a ton of new tricks that were pretty exciting to me! Who knew about the four finger swipe? Not me! So now I am home after two weeks of hotel life where all meals were provided and I could forget about real life as I know it. Let's not even talk about the laundry.

Wow! Two weeks of common core training! I bet your brain is feeling a bit overused. Our "fancy" district training for the state of Florida was on a week long but we still came back feeling so overwhelmed with information to share with our teachers. However, I must say that the new iPad is a great perk to going.

Enjoy it!
