We knew that this conference was going to be jammed pack with sessions and meet-ups, but some of us wanted to make sure we had a bit of down time. Thursday night we went to the MJ Live show as the Stratosphere. Since we had so many girls, we took a party bus there and back. Woohoo!

Do you see the lady in gold in the bottom picture? She wanted to join in our MJ picture after the show. We had to wait about 20 minutes on him, so she just hung out with us the whole time, occasionally yelling “where my girls at?”and shouting “MICHAEL, MICHAEL, GET OUT HERE!” She was so excited to meet MJ that when he finally came out she started screaming and gave him a huge hug. He told her she could get an autograph later, which made her fall to the floor crying. ( I think she thought he was the real MJ) It was a very memorable moment of the night!
I really enjoyed the sessions that I attended and I learned a lot of useful information. My favorite part of the conference was getting to meet everyone. The meet ups were the best part because you had a chance to really talk and get to know each other a bit more in a relaxed atmosphere. Teachers are such sweet and caring people and are very supportive of each other. I’m so thankful to TPT for this amazing opportunity to be a part of this community of teachers that are inspiring and uplifting. It really is a special group of people!
