In June, Kathleen and I started also working together to plan and deliver professional development sessions for teachers at our school. (It is actually part of my normal job, but Kathleen is just as passionate as I am about PD and volunteered to help.) More accountability! The timing was perfect; our school had just made the switch to 4x4 block. We were all looking for activities for the new 90 minute periods. This gave us the perfect focus for this fall's monthly PD meetings and The Classroom Cafe's weekly video segments. I never would have guessed how much fun it would be to dream up topics for the sessions with Kathleen and the rest of our teacher friends. From black light to qr codes, we have touched on a bit of everything (complete with invitations, decorations, and costumes:). Through this process, we have stretched ourselves, moved beyond our comfort zone, and looked for inspiration from many of you!
