Remember just two years ago, when the bunch of us (see #2) were griping and belly aching about the replacement of our own, local efforts to provide faculty development activities with the mandated week long District organized “faculty-led” (cough cough)
vendor showcase? “Give us back our local days,” we pleaded and shouted/grumbled. “We can do (and have done) it better.”
Well, we got three of them back and Gitte Maronde (ELL/World Language) and Chris Sabino (Math), co-chairs of CAST put together an interesting and experimental and educational program of learning opportunities, despite scheduling confusion and other complications. They both provided constant, but invisible, presence and support and made sure that everything ran smoothly from the solicitation of presenters to the provision of session feedback.
Three big cheers to our CAST coordinators for a job well done. Thanks for all the hard work!

The 3+n cheers should go to the presenters, those who opened up their classrooms for the open houses, the HWC musicians (Shevitz, Florez and Jones, SFZ for short, in my own mind at least), George Bickford for his abilities in everything organization along with the rest of the Office of Instruction. Wait, am I leaving anyone out? I feel like this is a bad acceptance speech for a nonexistent award.
Malarkey. Y’all did and do great work. Thanks from all of us who were there…
and also thanks from those who were not there like me but busy registering……. 😦
Thanks to you both. We appreciate all that you do. I can’t wait for the first CASTivity!
