Professional development, conferences, lectures…these bring joy and dread to the teacher. I have been to some awesome prof. development and conferences…good speakers and applicable information is a must!!!
I have been to some with dull speakers or ones who talk to a room of professionals like we were in 3rd grade! This is when my bad student side is revealed. I find myself on my phone, writing notes, and making fun of my “teachers.” These bad speakers do offer one thing, they help improve myself, to learn NOT to act as they do.
