Well today is my first official day of spring break. My wife and 3 kids had spring break this last week, so we were not able to take a trip this year. But I have found some ways to stay busy and keep learning.
Tomorrow, I head to Kentucky to lead a Professional Development with Science and Social Studies teachers at Murray Independent Schools. This is a two day workshop to help them increase student engagement and implement a "Flipped" classroom. Both Mike and Travis will be joining at different times via google hangouts to share their experiences and ideas. I am looking forward to making new friends, share ideas and learn with the good people of Murray, KY.
