Did I really want to get up at 6:15 on a Saturday? Did I really want to have to deal with rain and wind for an hour ride up the NYS Thruway? Did I really want to meet with a group of Hudson Valley Writing Project teacher/techies?
Well a few no’s and one big YES won the day! And once again we welcomed a guest techie virtually from Michigan and thanks to a smooth connection Troy arrived and stayed with us without interruptions.
So it’s Troy up there on the screen and on my computer and the live techies are talking casually and playing with new tools on their computers. Just one big multi-tasking love fest!
As we shared and prepared together for our upcoming tech conference coming soon to our local New Paltz BOCES on April 10, I marveled at the forces inside all working comfortably even though the weather outside was not encouraging.
Our numbers were smaller yesterday: Steve, Laura( our Poughkeepsie Day School host), Janine, Jenn, Marc and Summar and Troy made my day shine.
What a world of National Writing Project sharing. Let’s hope we can continue together. Next week we will be meeting for our annual DC conference to do what we can to meet with our political representatives to share what we do as a site and as a network
Let’s keep the N, in NWP!
I’m wondering if it isn’t time to start marching for an educational vision we can live with.
