I popped my head into one session: there were only two people in the room — talking about Mentoring New Principals. Initially, I was saddened at the small turnout in this particular session.
Until I realized the these two people would not have met and had a professional discussion about a topic both cared about if it wasn’t for this #edcamp. Those two young administrators were the reason that #edcamps continue to be held and thrive.
I don’t remember their names a month later, but their experience validated the power of #edcamp for me.
#Edcamp is not for the haters. It’s for the curious, the passionate, the vulnerable and the risk-taker. This professional development empowers you to be a better school leader.
Edcamps are an incredible experience, if you haven’t made it to one, GO! For a list of Edcamps, visit the complete list at Edcamp.org.
