This week I'm attending an Advanced Placement Conference, which has left me with very little time. I actually wasn't 100% sure if I was enrolled to attend, as I hadn't heard anything from them, but SURPRISE! I was enrolled. The conference is about an hour and a half drive, so I'm listening to an audiobook as I drive, and then enjoying a really great conference. I really don't like meetings, but this is a great conference so far. Once again, I'm reminded why I absolutely love teaching English. Language Arts really do rock.
Anyway, this conference threw me off a bit. I have to say though that I really enjoy the people who are attending this conference. Everyone in my group is from one of the islands, so it has been fun to "talk story" and get to know one another better. Also, can I say how much I love their idea on how to dress for a conference? Most everyone is in t-shirts, shorts, and slippers (island name for sandals, or as we call them, "flip-flops"). Talk about a dream come true! If only I could attend every meeting in a t-shirt, shorts, and a pair of slippers!
