Hi, my name is Lynnelle and I am a teacher nerd. I am the one who has her PDSA already completed for the 2011-12 school. I am the one who LOVES to figure out what assessment tools to use. I am the one who reads at least 10-15 professional books a year. I am a nerd and and today I was able to sit and be nerdy all day while working with fellow staff members at "Unwrapping" the Standards with Larry Ainsworth. It was a powerful day full of ideas and the realization that many of the things that happen in my classroom are best practices. BUT the areas I need to work on which is establishing the BIG ideas and making sure my students make those connections THROUGHOUT the school year is an area I need to work on. So being the nerd that I am I have already begun working on what I will do with my next unit of study. Bring on the inner teaching nerd!
