Today, I'm thankful...as I reflect on my professional development opportunity day with teachers in my building!
All the stars were aligned.
Our date for the session was rescheduled for yesterday.
I heard testimonials about trying out Pear Deck from other educators and coaches in our district. It's an interactive presentation tool that allows for audience participation and sharing results in realtime as participants answer/respond. I kept thinking, 'try it out' 'take a chance' 'be brave'.
So on the way to work, I picked up Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for our day. The donuts were still warm and my car smelled like a donut shop. Something about the smell of warm donuts just makes brings on a smile. Thank goodness my children were so willing to get ready early enough so I could run an early morning errand. I also heard the song, "Brave", on the radio...a subliminal reminder.
The donuts and Peardeck were a hit.
Marching in the learner line showed others that being willing to take risks helps us grow. It helps our students see that too. I look forward to more opportunities to become more proficient in using Pear Deck and learning with the teacher teams at the Schu!
