Phew. Year 27 is finished. I hope the kids learned something.
So... this isn't really a list of the PD I've done this year... unless actually working is considered professional development (which it probably should be). There are some PD opportunities I took sprinkled in, but this is a shortened version of what I tried to accomplish this school year. I don't think I was as good of a teacher as I was last year. Last year, I was able to connect with more students individually (was it due to Zoom?), and I sent those kids postcards and letters of encouragement all year. Not this year.
- Attended a one-hour session on Evolving Learner: Inquiry-Based LearningSEPTEMBER
- I quit trying to keep students three feet apart. This group is handsy. Very handsy.
- I was invited to be a contributor to a Twitter EdCamp on #Ungrading - we used Twitter spaces for my first time.
