Be careful what you wish for...you just might get it! :) I use to be a crazy presenter. I presented to teachers and kids and administrators and preservice teachers and pretty much anyone who would listen! I presented on every topic as well. It started with math many moons ago and then I became a language and literacy fanatic and sang that song everywhere I went and now, its Montessori!
I had the pleasure of presenting to 60ish Montessorians on Saturday afternoon at the 2014 MEPI conference in Myrtle Beach.
I came about getting to present in a funny sort of way. I submitted a proposal because Ive felt the need for more teacher voices when I have attended Montessori Conferences so rather than complain I offered to present. Unfortunately, I wasn't accepted but being the optimist that I am, I sent off an email and told the people in charge that I would love to present if anyone opted out. Low and behold they needed me! Little did I know it was the last presentation on the last day. I figured that no one would show up...me of little faith! But guess what...the teachers came! And I was a happy camper!
I spent an hour sharing everything I could cram in. It was a geography topic but I threw in a few other tidbits as well. It was a great crowd and I am back in love with presenting! Stay tuned for a later post...maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow with lots of links to what I shared! Thanks to those who were there! You were a fabulous audience!
