How many of you are going to school or district meetings, events, trainings, etc. this summer? Getting paid for it? I briefly considered going to a big content-area professional development thing for a week. Participants would get paid for going. In the end I decided not to because it was just too soon after school let out. If they had it in the end of July or something, I probably would have done it. Our admin has asked all teachers to return to school two days before our mandatory report date. They will be paying us our hourly rate of pay for those two days, which will be nice. The bad thing is that the new first day back is also my wedding anniversary. Oh well.
