Each year, I always like to step outside my box and attend a
professional development training that does not specifically relate to
my career path. This year, I chose to attend an institute that was
hosted by our state department of
education. I am happy to report that it was well worth my time.

I had the opportunity to serve in an external capacity as a part of the
Teacher Enrichment Workshop in conjunction with the MAGEC-STEM PLUS
(Minority Access to Graduate Education and Careers in Science,
Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Plus). The workshop was
provided, along with a multitude of other programs, through a grant from
the National Science Foundation.

This week, I'm heading west to join more than 3,500 CTE professionals at ACTE's CareerTech VISION in Las Vegas. The VISION agenda includes a wide variety of concurrent sessions. Given there are more sessions than there is time to attend, I'm reviewing program descriptions to plan my schedule. This prompts me to reflect on the bigger picture of conference participation and reasons for attending.
