Weca advocacy

My state NAEYC affiliate, WECA, has developed a wonderful advocacy blog. Take time to check it out and comment on the issues that matter to you!

If you're thinking about technology and what that means for teachers, you've got to check out Mark Milliron's blog. I had the pleasure of hearing him speak while at my Walden Residency and was truly inspired.

Finally, I had the opportunity to teach my first adult education class!!! I taught a continuing education class based on the book, 12 Simple Secrets that Real Moms Know. I had a great time and really enjoyed teaching adult learners. I have the opportunity to teach another class in April and I'm hoping that this will help get me more calls in to teach (I'm in the adjunct pool, already).

I'm also excited to be presenting at the 2009 Early Childhood Conference at UW-Whitewater. This is a pretty big conference so I am hoping that I won't get too nervous, especially after my speaking disaster at the 2008 WECA Conference (I was pretty nervous and did not do my best work). As I have these experiences, I learn so much. Each time I present, things get easier!

In other news. . . . . .
Things in the classroom are going pretty well. I am excited to know that I may end up with two part-day Head Start classes next year instead of a Head Start with Child Care room. I am excited to have the opportunity to reach even more children this way.
