This past week at the KFP Summer Institute was nothing short of amazing! The week was jam-packed full of great PD, fun fellowship with colleagues, and great food! There are so many aspects of the week that I can’t wait to bring back to my school and into my classroom.
I’m planning to implement the PBLs that we learned about this week. It was so helpful that we extended beyond the basics of PBLs and learned how to plan for PBLs and incorporate them cross-curricular. I’m also excited about everything I learned around Makerspace and design thinking process.
My favorite part of the week was probably the Ed Camp. I liked how we were able to not only choose the topics we wanted to learn about but also select which topics were up for discussion. This provided a great time for collaborative discussion among colleagues.
This was the greatest week of PD I have experienced as a teacher. Everything we spent time learning about and discussing was practical and valuable to the work we are doing in the classroom. Having the steering committee there all week and in the mix with us at dinner and on the patio was wonderful! I feel re-energized to bring this work back to my school!
