I love learning new things...LOVE LEARNING NEW THINGS! So, when I found out I could take a class about Anne Frank, I jumped on the chance to sign up, spend 10 hours in a room and give up an entire Saturday.
Now I'm sitting here and everything I keep finding out I'm pretty impressed with. Especially right now - we're going through different technology sites to use to teach this, I'm signed up for Edmodo to share ideas with these teachers and I now have been introduced to Animoto and Glogster.
I love teacher sharing days when everything actually seems relevant and worthy to take an entire day to learn. I'm also sitting with two really nice teachers - one who's very excited to learn about everything and the other who is passionate about the subject....these guys get me jazzed and excited to learn as well. They are a breath of fresh air and really help me get out of my funk of the end of the year "blahs".
