Today was my opportunity to chat with some people who have a similar role to mine. I taught my class and then headed across the water for the meeting, luncheon, and tour of a salmon hatchery.
It's nice to know that we are all in similar situations. No one is kicking tail on the science WASL. Nearly everyone is working on scope and sequence...looking at materials...talking to teachers. There are frustrations to be had---little guidance from the state and just the general struggles of getting a quality program up and running. Regardless, it was nice to do a bit of networking and strengthen some relationships.
And now, I'm off to enjoy the midway this week over at the Education Wonks. Come on over and see what else is happening in the great wide world of education.
