Earlier this year, I volunteered to observe teachers at other schools. We ended up visiting North Thurston High School, Bush Middle School, and Reeves Middle School, watching a variety of classes and teaching styles. The experience was so useful and invigorating that I volunteered to lead another team of observers. And then, flush with leadership, I volunteered to undergo "Professional Learning Community" training--although, despite the wishes of some, not in order to become a principal.
Four sessions at the ESD, three hours each. My calendar could fit four sessions, but it turns out the PLC training is actually six sessions long.
Thus, if you have a favor to ask of me, do me a favor and don't.
