Training Teachers on a Friday Afternoon

Who’s idea was it to train 100 teachers on a Friday afternoon?

Ever since the district budget cuts teacher trainings have been difficult.  In the past, we provided snacks and drinks for the participants to help maintain their attention during out presentation.  I used to think it was a waste of money.  However, now I long for those days.

A teacher’s day is long and hard.  The fact that they are willing to extend their day is a blessing.  However, without a little fuel to keep them going they can be just plain awful.  The texting, grading papers and zoning out must be addressed with norms.  I usually put some candy on the tables to give them a sugar buzz, take on an animated tone and employ some hands-on techniques to keep them moving.   Next thing you know I will be singing and dancing.  🙂 jk.

Lots of important info to share and lots of important people with whom to share it…..and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
