I found out this week that I’ll get the opportunity to go to the TAGT Annual Conference in Houston, TX. I briefly looked over the session list for the conference and I got super excited because there are a number of wonderful presenters that will be there. My short list of people I’ve seen before that I’d love the opportunity to see again are:
- Dr. Brian Housand – I saw Dr. Housand present at Confratute this summer and really enjoyed his personality and way of presenting information. He does a lot with technology and introduced me to some new things to try in the classroom.
- Dr. Joyce Juntune – I saw Dr. Juntune at our district’s summer training conference. She overwhelmed me with data at the time (it was the week after the end of last school year), but in a good way.
- Dr. Bertie Kingore – I’ve seen Dr. Kingore at a number of conferences before and has left an impression on me as a gifted educator.
- Kimberly Kindred and Melanie Ringman – These two find ladies work in my district and have done a great job teaching. I’ve had the opportunity to hear Kim speak before and it’s worth it. Great educators doing awesome things in the classroom.
I’m hoping to see some of these presenters at the conference, but also get the opportunity to find some new favorites. I’ll be sure to share some thoughts after the conference is over in December.
