We started out Sunday morning with a delayed flight. Part of the group got sent another direction which required them to end up renting a car and driving from Houston to Dallas.
At the conference we learned strategies to become better classroom instructors. We shared ideas with each other and with teachers from all over the west. We supported each other, we shared laughs and tears, and we saw some sights of Dallas.
Coming home was a long, long process that started at 3:00 Central time yesterday and ended up at 5:00 a.m. this morning when I arrived home. Our bonding experience was just about over. We all gathered together again at 4:30 this afternoon to give full support to our superintendent as the school board was deciding on his contract. People showered the room with praise, touching stories, and strong messages about how we felt about our fellow trip travel member. Our superintendent was hired again. We cheered, shed some tears, shook hands with him and savored our bonding experience.
