NCTE 2016: Post-Conference Take-aways

I had the pleasure of presenting at the National Council of Teachers of English Annual Convention on two occasions this year; I did my own session on building avid readers and one with my Wonder Lead Ambassador friends. The Wonder Session was all about various ways to encourage students through high-interest, interactive strategies. Louise Borden and Georgia Heard, both amazingly talented writers, shared powerful messages with the group through poetry and image. This inspired me to think about how teachers need to be re-ignited in their pursuit of wonder just as much as students. Administrators and support staff may need it even more. So, as 2016 comes to a close, let us encourage each other as adults to wonder about everything, to re-discover that sense of curiosity about the world, and bring that into the classrooms we serve. It can only make us better educators.
