  1. I’m so excited. I submitted my request to the staff development group, but my principal wants me to so go so bad, that he is letting me use the school credit card to submit our conference registration on Monday! He is behind me and this method 100%! I’m so lucky compared to others on here. I’m also looking forward to one of the ‘war rooms.’ I’ve never been to one of these conferences and the last NTPRS conference I was at was when it was in Kansas City…a while ago. I’m soooo excited!!! :o)

  2. Pacifists are the best warriors. Of course.
    And you don’t have to teach. The way Carol has it set up is that 15 people get to work on anything they want with the other 14 and me kind of just giving feedback after a set amount of uninterrupted teaching time, which in some cases I let go on and on because it was too good to stop. I then got my five minutes to comment and Chris said I always went over those five minutes and maybe I did so we have to talk about what that means.
    I think Carol made a good decision to have a 15 min. break in the middle of the three hours where groups of observers – up to 15 or 20 – cycle in and out (not on bicycles – they just walk in and out) from the other sessions they are attending to observe but not participate in the work being done. That means that the teacher working will be observed by up to around 30 people but only 15 will be doing the actual session.
    Then the next day 15 new people work and also on Friday morning.
    I remember last year with about 40 people in the room at North High School I asked who wanted to work on the first day and cool as a cucumber John Piazza put on that great smile he has and just walked up in front of everyone and started teaching Latin. It pretty much kicked ass. And then the next person and the next, Hosler I remember and David Sceggel and one after another I said to myself, “Dang, man! these people are good at this!” and it went on like that. We had Jason Bond up there in Chicago, Diane the Chicken and other rock stars like Ray Bauer and on and on as we just stopped thinking about how shitty we all are at this and relaxed into the knowledge that we were with friends and what the hell, right?
    Man I wonder what life would be like if we didn’t have to worry about being good all the time.
