I have attended four different sessions: Genius Hour, Digital Portfolio, Assists for Beginning Teachers, and Technology in Early Education. The most engaging sessions were Genius Hour and Assists for Beginning Teachers. Genius Hour gave me some ideas what I might be wanting to do in the future when I get more established and experienced with teaching. AFBT was an eye opening conversations. We talked about some hopeful "pie in the sky" ideas for first time teachers (one example is giving the beginning teachers 75% workload with 25% prep time for 5 years). I do wish these ideas could come into fruition as turnover rate for teachers are at 50%. One quote to remember is "we, teachers, do not give up on our students, but we seem to give up on each other." This also give me a boost of ambition to pursue administration position in the future.
