I emailed the lady in charge and was told the workshop was full. Darn. Maybe next time.
A few days later, I got a call from the professor in charge, was informed of a cancellation and am I still interested in attending. Of course I am.
THEN I went to the workshop website to find out more about the whole thing. In some unbelievable stroke of luck, I discovered the workshop was FREE. Plus, I was going to earn 3 credit hours. AND I get a stipend. I will also receive a technology package for my classroom.
AND! There are funds available to attend NSTA 2011!!! I am so excited about this last one. I have never been able to attend either a regional or national NSTA, so I am definitely going next year.
All of this along with some good professional development. I know, those three words rarely go together.
What a good summer.
