Well I just arrived in Phoenix...here is the view from my hotel room, or is it...perhaps I just found this picture on the internet and am just pretending to be in Phoenix...perhaps. I flew to Winnipeg, transferred planes and then came straight here. I met a couple of good old farmers on the way here and learned about cutter bees (apparently they are worth $.001/bee...which is a great price).
So, Phoenix is home to apparently 3.7 million people and the first one I met (cab driver) ripped me off. He pulled the ol' I don't have enough change routine. I would have sat there and watched him search all day long but some buggers stole my luggage...actually they were just the doormen, but I wasn't letting them get away with anything. The hotel is full of teachers...which is weird because the hotel treats us like we are important. Well, I am off to register...then a session by Rebecca DuFour: The Power of Professional Learning Communities tonight! Oh, it is plus 24 here...so I guess I didn't need to bring my winter jacket. Why didn't somebody tell me this place is next to California?
