At FLIBS for IB Librarian Level 2 Training
Made it to St. Petersburg all safe and sound. Found my way to the hotel, the conference center and attended the first plenary session at 5:oopm. So far, it seems to be well organized and there are over 500 people here from about 32 countries. That is pretty impressive. It's hosted by the Florida League of IB Schools (FLIBS) and so far so good.
Got a quick overview of IB: Diploma, Middle Years and Primary Years. Went over the newer IBO mission statement and the IB Learner Profile. Speaker was Ruben Valencia from the Gulliver Preparatory School. He did a great overview! I might have to ask for his presentation.
We start our subject sessions tomorrow at 8am (on a SUNDAY!!!). That's pretty early for the summer :P
