Normally, I love going so I get to hear all the behind the scenes things behind why we have to teach what we do. When I started Texas was in the middle of adopting new standards, (the stuff the state mandates that we teach) now I go because my local chapter is in the middle of setting up this year's conference. There are many things that have to be done for that...many. Makes my stomach hurt thinking about it.
This year was not without its drama. There is a journal that the organization produces. It is amazing. There are lessons, articles about different historical topics and then it always has enticing articles about the up coming conferences. Well, I wrote the article for our conference...and that is where the drama was. I won't go into it but I have to say that the entire thing made me question why I am apart of the organization and if I will stay involved beyond the conference.
Beyond that it was a nice weekend. No one said anything to me during the meetings that was ugly, and we went to San Antonio after.
Meandering our way back to the car we wondered into the Menger Hotel. It is the most haunted hotel in Texas.
There have been many reports of guest spotting a crying lady walking around this floor. She must have been napping when we were there. I would love to stay here...with an EMF detector, and the Ghost Hunter team. I am braver with numbers and cameras.
Oh...and a little heads up...you may start noticing a trend. Today is the kick off for the A to Z challenge. I will be posting everyday with a different letter to the alphabet. I will keep it real...and me. I promise.
