Day 3 as an NBCT

You wouldn't believe the list of authors who presented at the NCTE/ALAN workshop today!  I'll post the list after tomorrow's sessions - sorry to make you wait, but just think of how much more you'll be impressed with the addition of another day's authors!

Day 2 as an NBCT

 I'm still me.  Hard to be a NBCT on a Sunday LOL. Tomorrow and Tuesday I go to the NCTE/ALAN workshop in Philly.  Two days of young adult lit!!!!!! "Young Adult Literature in the 21st Century: ‘Scattering Light’ on Our Freedom to Think, See, Imagine"

For those who don't know: NCTE = National Council of Teachers of English, and ALAN = Assembly on Literature for Adolescents in NCTE.

Day 1 as an NBCT

I tried looking myself up on the "list of NBCT" list; it's offline. I tried signing up for the NBCTLink; it didn't recognize my password (or maybe my email). I tried to make sure I thanked everyone who helped me and notified everyone who recently asked if I'd achieved.

National Board Certification

Chatter has begun about when the candidates for National Board Certification will receive their scores. I've been waiting since mid-April. Word is, score usually are announced anywhere from the Friday before Thanksgiving until the first Friday in December after Thanksgiving. SiGH... i guess I've waited this long...

NJASL Conference

Happy Information Overload! I'm not being facetious. It makes me happy to know I have all of these tools, resources, peers, mentors, colleagues... available in my own back yard. Thank you, NJASL!
