    Has anyone gone to EdCamp? I had the amazing pleasure and honor of attending one on Saturday. It was a full day of collaboration with teachers and administrators from all over the region. We got there and had the choice to create our own sessions. We could either train, facilitate, or merely ask for a conversation on any topic. I chose to talk about crisis intervention, and we had an amazing discussion with teachers from public, private, and charter schools. Lunch was especially fascinating, considering I was feasting with representatives from two schools where I either taught or subbed before now.

    Oh yeah, and I also got six CEUs for free.

    If you have gone to EdCamp, I'd love to hear your experiences. If you haven't gone, is there one near you that you might attend? What you want to learn / talk

    I wish they would do them in the summer...I'd be all over it then. The idea of going to PD on a Saturday in the middle of the school year is just too much for me, even if it is good. I really need my weekends to recharge!
