The fall NDATL conference happened right after our last Jr. High football game.  The timing worked out such that I could hit the game then go straight to Minot for the conference.  In the past, I have voiced some discontent as to the content of the conference.  I don’t feel that it really helps me be a better me at work.  The sessions are really good for a teacher that wants to look for new things to add to their classroom and the large schools usually show up with a presentation or two about some project that they have accomplished....
