Today's post is a part of a series of Blog with Friends theme collaborations. Each month the group chooses a theme and each blogger writes a post that is connected with the theme. This month our theme is Starting Fresh. At the bottom of the post you will find links to everyone's posts. Here is a sneak peak of what you will find.
One of my favorite professional development activities every year is to attend and sometimes present at conferences. This year I had the opportunity to attend the TESOL Convention in Seattle Washington, where more than 6,000 teachers from around the world came to share ideas. Conferences provide teachers with an opportunity to get a feel for what other teachers are doing in their classrooms, it is a chance to ask questions, meet new people, think about how we teach and discover new ideas. This year I went into the convention wanting to improve my knowledge of how to teach pronunciation. I came away with several new ideas in that area as well as many other things to think about.
