So this.  This came across my PLN from @spencerideas.  I shared it with my peers because it is true.  Unless you are a teacher, you have no idea how hard we work. I listened to John Spencer’s podcast and believe me, I will take time to do the things I love this summer – spend time with my family and children, enjoy days and nights at Crystal Lake, run and paint.


But I also think of “rest” as a time for rejuvenation in another way – learning and planning to be the best teacher that I can be. This is the perfect time to pursue my own professional learning!

It will all start with TABstock 2018 – an amazing “uncoference” in Three Oaks, MI. We camp, cook, eat, explore, make art, laugh, enjoy nature, celebrate, sit around a perpetual campfire and share…..creating connections that encourage us in our work and passion for TAB.

I cannot wait to see my TAB friends!  Keep tuned in during the summer months as I share both versions of my time of rest!
