One of the biggest complaints others have about those of us who work in schools is that we get this really long summer vacation, so why do we need to get paid a reasonable wage? While it’s true that we get that vacation (and part of me says the haters are just jealous), the reality is that few of us use it for Vacation and more of us use it to revamp lesson plans, to learn new tools and skills, and to learn from each other.
My plans, in addition to revamping and trying new tricks, are:
- ALA Annual in San Francisco (where I’m triple booked at times on Saturday, with long stretches of downtime on Sunday and nothing on Monday – a far cry from the good old days)
- Wonder Women! Uncovering your Superpower and Signature Leadership Presence at my alma mater
If I had the time/money, I’d also be attending
- AISL Summer Institute in La Jolla
- Capstone Project Summit (also in CA, where apparently I could stay for most of the second half of June!)
Between now and then, however, I have time to go through my archived tweets and blog posts, pulling out great ideas to try for next year and tools/tricks/tips to share with you, my faithful readers. And after, more time to play and explore, not to mention get caught up on all the wonderful summer book releases and getting ready for fall. Sadly, Faculty Orientation and Student Orientation in August will be upon us far too soon…
What will you be doing? where?
