TPT Flock 17 Learning, Collaborating and Networking
What happens when you get 190 Educators from 28 States and 4 Canadian Provinces spending the weekend together? Awesomeness!
Welcome to TPT Flock Western New York TPT Team Organizers of the NortheasternTeacher Pay Teachers Meetup April 8, 2017
This weekend we had a phenomenal time together getting to know each other better, sharing educational tips and social media tips as well as just plain enjoying each others’ companies and taking some time for ourselves.
Your Planning Team
The Woodcliff Hotel and Spa
Woodcliff Hotel and Spa in Fairport, New York was a wonderful venue for us. It is a beautiful resort with a gorgeous ballroom, delicious food and a gracious staff.
Our keynote address was by Jenny Knappenberger of Art with Jenny K. who specializes in art-infused learning resources and promoting the importance of creativity in the learning process. Jenny’s presentation was both inspirational and motivational, but best of all it was hands-on and interactive! Jenny led us in making a large mosaic piece of art boldly featuring TPT’s Amy, Adam, and Paul and which showcased the importance of us as individuals as well as demonstrating the great things that we can achieve collectively when we flock together.
Yup…just like the TPT Annual Conference, we had sessions too! Our excited educators attended 2 panels and 4 different session ranging from Instagram Tips, Pinterest Tips, Cover Design, Blogging, Project Nucleus, SmartPhone Marketing, Organizing Time and Being Productive.
|Many thanks to all of the presenters including Greg, Nancy, Tabitha and Jodi and so many more|

Dr. Robyn McMaster
We honored our friend Robyn who joined us and help planned our first three meet-ups, worked with Dr. Ellen Weber of Brain-Based Tasks for Growth Mindset and was passionate about using brain based approaches to engage students’ individual interests and abilities. We raised funds to establish the Dr. Robyn McMaster Scholarship to keep Robyn’s work alive at the Mita International Brain Center

Especially loved the ring of clipart gift cards. Thanks you Sherri and Donna for putting this together.
