    I just came back from my NTO and I am wiped out, so so so tired!
    Well our guest speaker was Harry Wong!! :) He was amazing, he talked about management and how importnat it is on the first day. He gave each of us a copy of his book for free.
    I went up to him and asked to get my book signed, he was really cool about it and signed it. He asked what grade I will be teaching and gave me some personal pointers for my little ones. I was so thrilled! :)

    I really enjoyed his talk and I feel like I learned a ton!

    I thought I would share

    That's cool. I always liked going to seminars from famous educators (who are good speakers). It seems to revitalize me.

    It was an amazing experience. That book has been a bible to me and I am so glad he was there to explain some stuff. The man is crazy and so energetic.
