Coffee at The Early Bird Downtown Coffee Shop and Boutique to start the TransformIowaEd Co-Creators breakfast workshop. Love the blend name, if not the strength.
Trace Pickering and Sean Cornally of IowaTransformEd facilitated the small group discussions challenging stakeholder participants to pose problems and come up with solutions. I shared thoughts with Matt Townsley (and son) and John Toerper of the local ARC. Despite our different roles, we found commonalities and connections.
Also representing teacher librarians, was Ernie Cox of Prairie Creek Intermediate. We need to be proactive in this movement, helping to create an educational system that better reflects the needs of students in today's changing world.
