Getting My Wonder On at NCTE 19

NCTE 19 is the red carpet gala

of the literacy world, set against
the beauty of Baltimore's inner harbor.

Time to gather with friends. Network with new colleagues.
Be inspired by literacy luminaries. Get your wonder on
and bring home a stack of books for spirited inquiry.

I am so excited about NCTE 19 and visiting Baltimore that I simply can't stop listening to the song, Good Morning Baltimore while packing. I have to slow down, take a deep breath, and allow enough time to travel to my professional development presentation. Of course, I can't forget to continue building my convention schedule.

Part of my excitement for the upcoming NCTE Convention centers on my meet-up with the NCFL and Wonderopolis Wonder Team of wonderologist friends. We are presenting an interactive roundtable,
Ignite a Spirit of Inquiry Through Wonder, Curiosity, & Creativity!, in a simulated literacy makerspace on Friday, November 22nd at 3:30 pm. If you are in Baltimore stop by to say hello.



I'm listening to one more song, "Baltimore Song", to get in the mood to pack.


But before that, I am offering this post for Slice of Life Tuesday at Two Writing Teachers, many of which I will see at NCTE 19.
