Building Momentum to Transform Learning
It seems hard to believe that it has been almost two weeks since I blogged here last. Life truly got in the way as I finished my ISTE class last Saturday. Then, I went back to work after three weeks off (two for winter break and one for snow.) This past week was super busy, especially as I prepped for a "possible virtual learning day" due to snow.
Sixteen days into my #momentum year, I am going strong on my goals. As I mentioned before for my #oneword2022 #momentum, I will be focusing on four specific ways that I can build and maintain #momentum. They include:
Back on 12/30/2021, I shared how I plan to use a few upcoming opportunities to address my second mini goal:
Grow and enhance my leadership skills as an educator by engaging in experiences that will help me broaden my perspective.
As we hit the second half of January begins, I wanted to share some amazing opportunities that I am participating in this winter. These opportunities are all great ways to not only inspire you, but help connect you with some amazing people to add to your PLN! Some of these experiences are in person; while others are virtual. But all of these experience will help you to grow and add to your educator toolbox.

I am so excited about this conference for so many reasons. First of all, I am presenting a brand new 2 hour workshop, Empowering Littles to Create Using Digital Tools, in person. This session will take my Creating with Littles presentation to the next level and includes brand new content from my practice so far in 2022. Beyond that, I am beyond thrilled to get to connect and learn with so many people in my PLN in person there. As I reviewed the sessions being held, I can't wait to learn with so many people I admire.
