Boring training!

Why are trainings/inservices so boring? You tell us to be engaging, yet this training I'm in right now is making me want to cut my ears off so that I don't have to listen.

And my mind would wander to all the productive things I could be doing instead.

Can you imagine what they were like before technology? We couldn't escape...to PT or message our friend across the room

Hang in! the kids are coming soon.

I already know one of my required PD days will be spent learning about how todo small group reading and writer's workshop....from people I was in the class with when it was originally presented to our district 15+ years ago. Boring and redundant.

The older I get, the harder it is for me to just sit and listen to PD all day .

I also get so annoyed that teachers are expected to differentiate EVERY SINGLE DAY, but admins can't figure out how to differentiate for PD that is less than 10 days per school year.

Amen to that. In 19 years of teaching, I can count on one hand the decent development days. I would go one of two ways with themů..sit in the back and not even pretend to pay attention, but kept quiet. Or, sit closer to front and ask questions that would get the trainer to deviate from her/his script and just get down to the nitty gritty.

In 30 years, I do not ever remember going to an inservice and thinking how good/useful it was. I just thought about all the other things I needed to do to in my classroom. On my last workday before I retired, we had a virtual staff meeting. I was gleeful thinking that I never had to go to another meeting again!
