2st Century Conference

Hello! I hope y'all are having a great week so far. I've been at the 21st Century Multistate Conference this week. I got home around noon yesterday and had the rest of the day to relax and rest. Today I'm sharing some information about my time at the conference.
I was really hesitant to go because being a new teacher I hated to miss three days of school. I also had mixed feelings about being away from Chase overnight for the first time. Since I had some co-workers going that I'm pretty close with I decided to go and I'm SO glad I did. I had a great experience.

We were up bright and early Monday morning for breakfast and to listen to our speaker. We had speakers at Breakfast and Lunch the first day as well as 3 breakout sessions where we got to choose what we wanted to go to. Our speaker for lunch that day was Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton and he was GREAT. I learned some great math strategies to use with my students during some of our breakout sessions. Unfortunately this is the only picture I have from Monday before we headed to dinner.

Tuesday the conference was basically a repeat of Monday with more amazing speakers and more breakout sessions. We skipped one of our sessions to visit with an art history exhibitor and paint these masks. This company was so neat and had many different types of artwork that correlate with different historical events that could be used in the classroom.

We started Tuesday night out right playing the Breakout Game. This was my first time playing this type of game and it was SO MUCH FUN. We escaped from our Island with about 4 minutes to spare. I texted Chase as soon as we broke out to tell him we had to try one close to home as soon as possible.

After "breaking out" we had the best meal at Firebird restaurant. This was our first time here and it did not disappoint. Parmesan crusted mahi, parmesan mashed potatoes, and pumpkin cheesecake. :)

These were the outfits I wore during both days of the conference. I was so thankful to be able to wear jeans and tried to pack outfits that were both comfy/cute. Sorry the picture quality isn't the best, I snapped both of these on the way out the door in the mornings.

We left the conference Wednesday morning and got back around noon.f It feels SO good to be home. I'm ready to get back to school tomorrow and to see my sweet babies.
Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO
