Well, I fell in love again… with the annual We Are Girls Conference.  It happens every November, and is the most wonderful event, with the loveliest most empowering messages for young women and girls.  I get weepy thrills just walking through the doors every year.  I am moved and delighted and amused and inspired.

This was my third year presenting a workshop at this amazing event.  I speak about how our brains learn best when they FEEL good and how if you have struggled with math, there is nothing wrong with you!  The system is broken, not your brain.  We do some dang fun exercises and go away with tools for feeling good and for befriending math.  If you missed it and want to know more, that’s a lot of what my Math Number Talks are about too.

We also had a prize drawing for my favorite new eatery.  Have you been to Gino’s at Mueller yet?  You will fall in love with Gino and his wife and their homemade pasta and tableside Caesars.  Stephanie M. gets a nice mother-daughter date there on us!

Points to ponder.  Fun stuff to roll around in your head, or better: to talk about with your learner!
f you were at my workshop, and remember how to do a Gratitude Slam, do one now! Then write me that you did it and I’ll send you little gift.  Happy Thanksgiving!
