E is For…

E is for ELATED, EXCITED, EAGER, EXUBERANT, EUPHORIC, and ECSTATIC!!! Those are all good words for first grade and first graders but tonight it’s all about the teacher!

I just discovered I get to go to the workshop I so badly wanted to go to in Indiana this summer! Not only is my school paying for the workshop, they are paying for my meals the two days I am there. I am so EXCITED!

I’m going to get to see some of my gurus. I’m going to get to listen to some amazing authors and presenters. I’m going to get to meet teachers and “slicing” friends from outside of Oklahoma!

So as you can see although this post is pretty short and isn’t about my Energetic first graders (and boy are they Energetic with 10 days left of school), it is full of Eagerness and Enthusiasm for the chance to be in the presence of amazing people.


On a side note I Enrolled in two graduate classes for this fall and as I looked through the textbooks I will need I discovered that Reading With Meaning by Debbie Miller is on both class lists.

I think it may be karma!

    Yippee! That’s awesome news! I think I know which conference you mean, and it’s so worth it. I don’t get to go this year (boo!), but it’s close to where I live, so I’m hoping to at least get to hear about it from my friends who go.
    Congrats and enjoy!


  5. Congratulations! What a great piece of news for you, & it’s great that you get the extra paid for too. Hurrah!


  6. I am so excited for you. There is nothing like a teacher conference to get you inspired and rejuvinated. You’ll have to share your new findings after the conference is done.

    You can’t go wrong with Debbie Miller…your class is sure to be the perfect fit. Enjoy!


  7. Yay! Such great news! Enjoy and embrace all the new learning!
