Wk1 Leadership Blog Post

To publish an article or do a presentation at a conference?

This has been a hard decision for me to make and I have gone back and forth everyday since reading the assignment.    
I have worked really hard on my Action Research project and would like to share my results regardless.
My thoughts:

  • Presentations are my strong point, I have been giving one at every months professional development day since I started working at my school.
  • This project has been like an experiment, so writing a "professional" academic paper would be really neat.
I think that my final decision is to write an article to publish.  My main reasoning for this is because it is something new to me and I would like to take the challenge.  
I am already in the process of coming up with a presentation to present at a conference with a coworker, also a former EMDT graduate.  Her and I go to these yearly TechTalk district conferences and although we love them, there is never anything "good" pertaining to special education.  Both being EMDT graduates, having learned so much and having to modify it to our environment, we want to share.  

This way decision I will be getting the best of both worlds in the next coming months post graduation!

Best of luck to my fellow cohort peers!
