I spent the day at a CDE conference. There were some pieces that I took away - specifically on Common Core and how we can support new teachers in engaging in these new standards. BUT the best part of the day was running into a committee member. I think I have mentioned how great my Chair is - but I have an equally as distinguished committee. I feel fortunate that she was willing to serve on my committee - talking to her today not only encouraged me on my journey, it also got me motivated to do more for my research participants! I am fortunate that I have surrounded myself with colleauges who are as passionate about the work I am studying as I am - they continually ask me hard questions that push my thinking. LOVE IT!
