Teacher's Convention was Excellent This Year

​Teacher convention, while from home, was excellent again this year. The Calgary Teacher Convention is organized by volunteers only! This was the larges online teacher convention ever organized in North America. Yes, the first log-in on Thursday morning was a little tricky, but within 15 minutes, I was good to go and had no further tech challenges. Not having to go downtown in -35C was actually quite nice, too. Personally, I attended sessions on: Working with Grief; Making Learning Visible: Student Photo Books & Co-creating Learning Stories (so want to try this here at CWS!); Unsilencing Emotions in Education. The Emotional Labour of Teaching; Anxiety: I’m Not Playing Your Game; How to Get Your Students Writing; and Understanding & Using Mental Toughness (this is similar to resiliency). This Friday, teachers will share with me what their highlight of teacher convention this year was. ​
