No, I won't be at the conference for supervision and curriculum development. I mean gracious heavens ... in my district teachers have no input into curriculum. We do what we're told . The high muckity mucks from Central Office send their administrators, curriculum coordinators, and department chairs to meetings like these ... while the rank and file prep for the TAAS tests.
Hmmmm ... and you're nervous?
Are you intimidated by conferences? Do you feel intellectually inferior to the people you'll be meeting? Or do you just hate flying?
And you're as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs?
David peered at his monitor with sudden suspicion.
Are you SURE that you're from Ohio? You SOUND like a southerner.
Truly though - I've been to many conferences and unless you're presenting there's no reason to be nervous. Think of this as a working vacation.
San Antonio is a beautiful city and chances are you'll be downtown.
So take a walk along the canal. Buy a Mexican scarf. Have a meal at an outdoor cafe and listen to the Mexican music.
Enjoy the weather - which is much nicer right now than the weather you're having in Ohio.
RELAX! You'll be fine.
And if you have some time - go see the Alamo!
And go see the Texas museum of culture! It has some really neat displays from Texas history.
