The life of a teacher is full of surprises. On Monday, one of my colleagues approached me and said that she'd registered for a conference this week, but now could not attend it. Was I interested?
I took a look at the materials. It's the Dallas-Area Teacher Forum on Holocaust Education. She knew that I had taught the Holocaust using the novel The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom, so she thought I might be able to glean some good stuff. You BET I was interested.
So tomorrow and Friday I get to spend the day at UT-Dallas (in Plano, actually). I am thrilled to have the opportunity to attend it.
And then, after it's over tomorrow, I'm going to go have supper at Cafe Brazil with my blogger pal MaggieKatzen. How could it be any better than this?
