I am linking up with A Burst of First to share how amazing Vegas was!!
I am so glad that I was able to go for the SDE differentiation conference, but I wish I would have been able to go to the TPT conference!!
I learned so much that I can't wait to get ready for my classroom!! I can't believe I start school in LESS than a month!! That is a whole different post though!
Vegas. Was. Amazing!
I was so happy to see so many familiar faces! I have been talking about these people that I read about, or see on IG for so long my husband couldn't wait for me to go!
In my first session of the conference I was so excited to realize that Katherine was sitting right across from the aisle from me!! I was so excited to meet her!! I love the way that she organizes her reading, and I can't wait to see what she is going to do in her first grade classroom next year!!
You can read all about my first day at the SDE conference here!
I went up to the booths, and I was so excited to go to both the Go Noodle both and the Creative Teaching Press booth!! When I got to the CTP booth I was so excited to meet Heather!! I had been emailing Heather a couple of months ago, so it was awesome to finally meet her!!
Alos, Greg was hanging out in the booth!! He is so nice, and so funny!! You should make sure you check out his awesome blog, and his mustache theme!! I LOVE IT!!
On Wednesday I was so excited for the big blogger meet up!! I was so excited to take my besties with me so that way I wouldn't feel as uncomfortable. I am totally shy in big group settings, even when I am with my friends. I have a hard time talking in such big groups.
I was able to spend some time talking with an amazing girl who works at TPT!!
When it was time for them to start giving away prizes it was CRAZY!! There were SO MANY people in the room!
I was so lucky though, I didn't win once, but I won TWICE!! Can you believe that!?!
I won the fantastic Teacher Anchor and I won the amazing pencil sharpener that everyone has been talking about!! I can't wait to get both up and working in my classroom!!
Wednesday night I also saw Katherine again, and I was able to meet Molly!!
I think Molly was one of the first bloggers I started following! I didn't get to talk to her very long, but it was a joy to meet her!!
Thursday night was AMAZING!! I have been
stalking following Ashley from Schroeder Shenanigans in Second!! I love everything she creates, and I love her drive! I wish I had half as much talent as she does!!
She invited me to have dinner with her roommates, so I was able to meet some other amazing bloggers who I have also been
stalking following for a while!! Angie, Marcy and Dixie were so fun to hang out with!! They were so inviting, and I loved being out with them!! I wish I could have spent more time with them! There is always next year!!
Friday was the TPT conference and I heard what a great event it was. I wasn't able to make it, this year because I was at the DI conference. I plan on being there next year, no matter what!!
Friday night Courtney and Kristen put on an amazing meet up!! They are both super sweet, and had these amazing cookies to pass out!! They put together a great give away too!!
I was able to meet some more amazing bloggers, and hang out a little more with Ashley and her roomies!!
I was so sad to leave Saturday morning and drive home, but the amazing week had to come to an end. I can't wait until next year!!
