Calling All Northern IL Teachers!

Hi everyone!


After reading SusanTeach's post, I thought it would be nice if some of us in Northern Illinois (and Southern Illinois) want to get together.
I just came from a coal conference in southern Illinois and I know it could be anywhere from a 3-7 hour drive one-way, depending on where you are.
I am in Chicago and I know there are a couple other teachers in Chicago. Anyone interested?

You know what? I'm open to suggestions! I really have no idea. I just know that I love the ideas on the board and I would love to meet some of the people who post. Let's figure out a meeting place for everyone who wants to be involved and then pick a date and time that is convienent for everyone involved (which isn't always easy, but we're off for the summer.)What are your ideas?

Not sure how to make it easy for everyone to get to without some people having to make it an overnighter.

I'd be interested. I'm in a northern suburb of Chicago.

Now, we need to decide on a central location for everyone. I am in a southern suburb of Chicago. Any ideas?

Well, there's always Navy Pier or there are a ton of restaurants to choose from in the city(Anyone ever go to The Grande Luxe? It's on Michigan Ave. and it's beautiful! It's not too expensive either.)
But if we want to move away from the city we could meet at that outlet mall (I think it's off of 88.)
There's also Yorktown which has a lot of restaurants.
I'm getting excited!

I'd love to meet you guys! I would vote for not inside the city, but am up for just about anywhere else. I'm from the northwest suburbs. Are you talking about the Outlet mall in Aurora? That would be fine with me, or just about anywhere else in the suburbs! I know there's tons of places in Naperville to meet, too!

not for the city also.

Yorktown, Naperville, Outlet Mall on 88, not a problem here.

How do we choose??

Ohhh can I get in?! I'm up for meeting just about anywhere. I personally live on the IL/IN border, right off of I-80/94.

I think we should collect emails for everyone interested and then take a vote on where we want to meet.

Since I'm closer to the Iowa border, my vote would be for anywhere outside of Chicago - preferably west or south. The best times for me would be the end of July or early August.

I say Naperville in the mid/end of July. Maybe we should pm each other our emails...feels kind of weird to be posting a meeting place/time on the internet! If people want to pm me their emails and maybe the town/region they are coming from, I'll put together an email list and email it to the group.
