Rejuvinate with an EdCamp

It's hard to believe that today is the first day of Spring.  With Spring comes MAPs testing, NSEA testing, musicals, awards banquets, track meets, golf meets...there is so much going on this time of year.  And to think that there are only 40 days left in the 2014-2015 school year!

Where did the school year go?

I'll admit that it's really easy to lose focus in the Spring.  Admit it.  You've done the same.  As educators it's tempting to begin counting down until summer vacation.  The time that we will have.  The family vacation we have planned.  As a result, it's easy to lose focus in our classrooms.  That's not really fair to our students.  Is it?

I have found the solution to this problem.  Attend an EdCamp.

Tomorrow, I am attending EdCamp Omaha.  It is going to be a much needed "kick in the pants" for my psyche.  It's going to help me focus.  It will recharge my batteries.  It will remind me of why I have become an educator in the first place.

I am looking forward to being surrounded by passionate, driven and determined educators that are ready and willing to give up a Saturday to make themselves better.

I can't wait.
