I’ve learned so much during this Kenan Fellows summer institute. As a more experienced educator, I’ve had many amazing teacher growth experiences inside and outside of the classroom. The Kenan Fellows summer institute is, by far, one of my best professional development experiences.
I’ve learned so much from my colleagues. They truly are experts in their respective education fields from across the state. The breadth and depth of expertise in assessments, resources, technology integration, social media, etc. have been invaluable.
The team-building and collaboration through the EdCamp and the Scavenger Hunt were also excellent exercises. Even though it has only been four days, I have grown as a person and a professional in terms of my confidence, knowledge of resources, and awareness of teacher advocacy methods.
I’m excited about the internship experience!
