October 20, 2003

I have a good feeling about this week. Our school district allows us four professional development days to work on the national boards. On Friday, I'll work with a friend who's also pursuing her boards. We'll meet first on Monday, though, to decide what we want to accomplish during our Friday meeting.

Friday seemed to fly by. We didn't even take a lunch break, and we still ran out of time. I'm really looking forward to our next professional development day. It's so much better to have someone to bounce ideas off of and someone to listen to you. After coming home Friday night, I continued to work on my entry until 1 a.m.!
