Whole Brain Teaching Wednesday! FREE WBT Conferences

     So last week I shared with you some of my favourite WBT blogs and, again, a BIG thank you is going out to all those teachers out there that are willing to share their ideas and experiences with all of us! With your help, last weeks post is now my most read blog post ever, yahoo!

     As we start June I know that some of us have already started our summer breaks while some of us are still counting down the days! Either or, it is the perfect time to learn more about Whole Brain Teaching (WBT) before you start up your new classrooms in the fall. Now that you have a network of teachers using WBT methods in their classrooms you are probably ready to learn even more and what better way then attending a FREE WBT conference! Thats right, FREE, what do you have to lose?

     To learn more about these conferences and find registration information check out the WBT Calendar on their website. Unfortunately, as you probably noticed, there are no conferences in Canada (yet) but I hope that some of my American followers will attend one for me since the closest one to me is over 1,200 miles away!

     With a strong network of WBT teachers and a conference or two under your belt you'll be more than prepared to start off the next school year with a bang!
