Convention season is upon us!!!
Do you hear my scream?
I love going to our state convention every year. It gives me such encouragement. Each year I've been on the blogger team I am privileged to giveaway a family registration to a reader but first I am going to tell you who I am looking forward to seeing and hearing!
The convention "Thrive" is June 2-4 in Winston-Salem. We only live a little over an hour away so we actually drive back and forth instead of paying for a room. One year we did but we would rather be in our own bed!
Each year I go through the speakers list and organize who I have interest in and highlight them so that I know what room I am looking for before the time comes.
Hubby and I separate sometimes depending on the topics and if there is something he wants to listen too as well. Yes, there are topics and speakers he enjoys too!
I am looking forward to these sessions and speakers:
Kirk Martin - Ten Ways to Stop Self Defiance, Disrespect and Meltdown
Sonya Shafer - The Quite Schooling of Nature
Andrea Daily - High School Smorgasbord
Jessica Frierson - Resisting The Urge To Rush
Joanne Giff & Pinkney Greene - Dyslexia: Don't Be Afraid of the D word
Pamela Hall - Teaching Reading That Sticks: A Whole Brain Approach
Hal & Melanie Young - Surviving Struggling To Read
Alright - Which of those are you most looking forward too? Maybe not one of mine but another?
Take a look at the speakers here.
