#RSCON4: Opportunity to Connect

I recently had a wonderful opportunity to connect and present at the amazing worldwide online conference RSCON4!! It was basically my first presentation outside of my school, so I had some nerves to get over but eventually got a bit more comfortable.  I want to thank the organizers for a wonderful weekend of learning and sharing.  I have learned so much from others and I continue to grow in my career with the help of an amazingly connected PLN!! I am very proud to have the opportunity to also share some of my experiences and I hope at least bring up conversations and thought processes that help move education forward.  My session is named Armed with Empathy: Creating a Classroom Climate for Collaboration.  I believe strongly that I am far from some sort of expert,  but just a dedicated educator with a passion to change lives for the better.  If you are so inclined to give it a listen or watch I would be honored.  It documents some of my experience in creating a classroom climate and my efforts in trying to stay empathic while making important curriculum decisions.  Below is the link to the recording.  I would love some feedback or even hope to start some dialogue on the topic.  Thanks so much.
