Last year, we went to the conference. So, we knew we were headed back to see a few of our very favorite teachers from all over the country.
We hoped Laura would love the conference. After all, she was in full-court press Mom mode trying to get her oldest off to college soon.
We went to see these amazing teachers at work. And, boy howdy, do they work hard!
Believe it or not, they do not all say y'all? But we didn't discriminate.
Rachelle from What the Teacher Wants
Hope from Second Grade Shenanigans
Kathleen from Growing Kinders
Cara from The First Grade Parade
Erica from Erica's Ed-Ventures
Deanna from Mrs. Jump's Class
Mr. Greg and The Mister from Kindergarten Smorgasbord
Marc Brown. Our favorite quote from him, "If I ran the zoo, all teachers would make more money than movie stars because what they do is so much more important." Marc is the creator of Arthur. But you already knew that.
What we learned:
Teachers excited about learning and teaching!
We wish we could be in the classes of Rachelle, Hope, Mr. Greg and so many others!
We never get tired of hugs.
We like Sprinkles cupcakes. Which doesn't surprise us because we love glitter.
Laura and Amy are too old for this many days and nights in Vegas.
Oh, we are getting off track…….again.
What we missed:
Sonic Happy Hour
Our own beds
Most of all, our sweet families back in the Lone Star State.
