My students and parents know that I get incredibly excited at the prospect of adding to my learning, especially when it’s self-directed, meaningful, and mind-opening. I love the idea of creating my own professional development agenda, the way I know that I will get my most learning done. And ISTE just provides me with that: allows me to create my own pathway in exploring topics that I know I will bring back to my classroom in a way that will make sense to my classroom community, school culture, and district vision. It’s a lot of work, and I cannot wait to tackle it!
…it’s my outlet to feed my teaching soul, empower my learning mind, and ignite my bursting heart for the year ahead.From Level Up blog
