There is nothing like the feeling of walking into a classroom the day after attending an NAGC conference. Despite exhaustion, looming deadlines, and work to get caught up on, the smile on my face and the thoughts and excitement I feel seem to carry me along during my slow introduction back to the daily schedule. As I meet my students face to face, I can’t help but feel that if we, as educators, can instill even a percent of this enthusiasm for school, half of our work will already be done.
