One of the things we frequently discuss as a staff is our dual role of Educator AND Learner. This was evident recently as three Austin educators attended the 2012 Learning Forward National Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. Kara Cadue, Liz Malone, and Cooper Hilton spent five jam-packed days learning from leading educators, researchers, and professors from around the country. We suspect they also managed to squeeze in some time catching the city "sites." :)
We have asked them to each share a reflection from one of the sessions that they attended. In addition, they will share their learning with the Austin staff at an upcoming professional learning day in February.
