i have quite the full plate this week and most remarkably the 3 professional learning sessions that i will be leading are all short sessions that i have never delivered before 🙂 while it probably should make me a bit more nervous than i am, this week shapes up to be a confluence of two practices that are very important to me…being busy and being challenged, i consider this week to have both of these in surplus. i’ll start out with a webinar tomorrow afternoon and while i’ve been part of a webinar before i’ve never led one. it will only be 45 minutes and i am very familiar with the content so i feel good about my first hurdle. wednesday brings a 2 hour SK refresher, the content i could do in my sleep given it is the foundation of gifted programs in HISD, but the tight format and the larger contract that the training falls in context of is something new. finally friday will provide me and opportunity to go back to a super school i had the pleasure of working with a few weeks ago, this time to get the conversation started about using blogs. the calm of mid to late august is gone and a full fall training calendar awaits, this week is sure to be an interesting prologue.
let the games begin
