Plus, I got to take a side trip to Prairie Lights. That was the cherry on the sundae of my trip!

I'm home from my conference, and my brain is full... in a good way. There were many good sessions at the Iowa Talented and Gifted Conference, but by far, the best was anything done by Bertie Kingore. She's a gifted education guru, and I basically felt honored to just be in her presence. She was inspiring, engaging, and informative. I feel like I have a ton of differentiation strategies to take back to my classroom and to all the staff in my building. That's what a conference should be. I think I could be this woman's groupie if I didn't have to make a living. It's a wonderful thing to leave a conference knowing that you've found your spot in the world and that your job is truly a passion.
