I had the honor of attending a Shakespeare Conference at BAM. It was a treat to myself. I jumped at the opportunity to get se ProfessionalDevelopment especially because it was on a Saturday=I didn’t need to get permission from my AP or Principal.
First of all, the staff and facilities at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) are amazing. They made a very large group of people feel welcome and connected immediately. I was scheduled for two sessions with some folks with the RSC and I am so very grateful for their time and suggestions on binging more shakespeare into my classroom and life.
The whole day was full of breaking down barriers and building bonds with new friends and teachers. I had an amazing time and was hungry for more. This is what life is all about. Reawakening a love of learning and feeling inspired to share my passion.
