It may sound silly, but so often in the past professional learning days were relegated to the decision making of those distanced from teachers and the classroom. But today was different. Today educators were asked about what they wanted to study under the large umbrella topic of science education. I made my choice. My choice was honored, and I got a lot of good work done--work that prepares me well for the science teaching ahead.
Though it's taken time for us to get to this place, I am so happy that we are here. May it continue.
