I am headed to New Orleans (in the morning) to the NCTM national conference and I am excited/nervous/reeling from all the things I still need to do. It all started when my district received the STE+AM grant from the DODEA. In the budget was money for 2 members of the Math Vertical Team to attend a national conference. I was nominated, stated my case for going and voted in as the elementary rep to attend. It is a big responsibility because when I return, I will be presenting to the district teachers. It is also a big responsibility because I got plans ready for 4! days out of the classroom. Yikes!
I am really excited to learn as much as I can during my time there (for those who don't know...I'm a bit of a geek). I also have never been to Louisiana, so this is something new as well. I plan to Tweet while I am there any nuggets that I get in real time to stay connected with my people. Here's hoping all goes well!
