#NeCathEdCamp Success!

Wow, what a day! #NECathEdCamp was truly a success. Did we solve all of the educational challenges of an educator? Did we answer every question that an educator has? Were all the unique situations of a Catholic school teacher addressed? No. But did we have a great time of learning and sharing? YES!

But first, a photo. Here are the amazing educators who spent a morning working on professional development that fits their needs. Aren’t they an awesome group?!


There are many reasons I love EdCamps and here is one reason to organize one in your area…the new batch of teachers. Our EdCamp is located at Creighton University and they have a unique program called the Magis Catholic Teacher Corps. You can read more about this program here and here. What better way to pass on your learning but through an unconference. And is there anything more satisfying, as a seasoned teacher, to see a group of young people excited and ready to teach in our Catholic schools? I am so grateful for the many seasoned teachers that came today too to lead the way!

Another big plus, in an EdCamp, are the sponsors. Companies reached out to us and donated some great items. I was overwhelmed at the generosity of these companies. They know how to build good will and get their products into the hands of teachers who will use them and share their product on Social Media. I personally know that this strategy works, I have bought several items myself from our sponsors. Chromebook Winner
