"What was the event this past week that most took me by surprise - an event where I saw or did something that shook me up, caught me off guard, gave me a jolt or made me unexpectedly happy?"
This week has been a great week for me. The reason being is that my school system is on fall break. This week has been a wonderful week to relax and take a break from work. This has been the first week since school has started that I have actually had free time that did not just revolve around school and school work. In regards to the blog question I did get good news before we were dismissed for fall break. I found out that I got approval to go to the New Teacher Conference in Macon Georgia. I am honestly excited about going and learning new techniques to try in the classroom. I really feel like I will benefit from this conference. I hope to learn better classroom management skills. I feel like I really need help in this area. I also hope to learn how to better lesson plan. Lastly, I hope to find new resources to use. I have a really difficult time making engaging lesson plans for my third level class, so I hope to find some new resources.
