What are you doing this summer?

Please forgive me as it’s been a good week and a half or so since I sat down to blog for the DEN. I’ve been in a funk since the end of school came, I think it’s partially the stressing situation of moving campuses. Nothing like moving eh? Today marked the first day that I can say that I am DONE with the preparations, so hopefully the physical moving of the stuff goes well, and we don’t lose anything. (Wishful thinking I know)

I posed this question on my personal blog after reading about it at the Teacher Leader’s Network. I think it’s a very valid question to show who the leaders in the educational realm truly are. Having been a part of this AWESOME community for the better part of a year and a half now, I view each and every member, from the hierarchy of leadership within Discovery Education (both past and present), to the most active of STAR DEN members, to the new members just joining daily. How is this so? The true epitome of a leader is someone who stands out to others. A beacon of light to guide others. Deep thoughts, I know.

So back to the question I posed. What are you doing this summer to spread the good word of technology in education? Myself, I’ll be sharing great times with fellow DEN members and educators at NECC2007. I’ll also be partaking in one of the summer national institutes as well. Both wonderful ways to meet other members, network and become friends. So what’s on your summer plate?

    I love summer break! That is when I try to catch up on reading! This summer I am going to review books for school wide professional development. (Science in elementary school – Any suggestions? I have a few I will be looking at next week.) I want to be able to tie in unitedstreaming in with the PD on science.

    I am also working on online course (FOR-PD) and will be working on school improvement plan.

    The best part will be visiting older son, his wife, and our grandchildren in California!

    During the first week of summer break, I will be giving a workshop on podcasting. After the workshop I’ll be catching up on some professional and recreational reading. I have a stack of books I’ve put to the side all year.

    Also spending some time just relaxing in the Florida Keys.

    I am taking a week of classes at Florida Southern College with a number of others to become a Florida Digital Educator (FDE). I am going to learn more about podcasting among other things.
    In addition to that My husband and I will be going to Kansas City to the North American Christian Convention. We had our very first date twenty-five years ago in the same city at the same convention! I am a romantic!

    I am working just about every day in June either at school, teaching workshops, or attending them. June 30 starts vacation as we make the long journey to Kentucky to visit my husband’s family. When we return I should have a few weeks to get my house in order and relax a bit before school starts. Some time in there I will be visiting my parents in Pinellas County and hopefully make it to Illinois to visit my god daughter and her family. I don’t know if I will actually be able to find the time to take care of all the projects I didn’t have time for during the year, but my main goal will be to have my son potty trained! Daycare starts in August so time is running out. Other than that I have no plans.
