Can we make links that show when a standard is in 2 or more
   content areas i.e.: level 2 social studies has a money &
good/services component as does level 2 math. So rather than                        Solutions team as very good Lilia rocks!
teach it in both areas-if we know that it is in 2 content areas it
                     gives you a heads up.

I'd like if we had more time to discuss ideas and strategies with
     each other. One small thing-we keep going over the CC
components every time we come together. Maybe we can have              The sessions helped give me more ideas on helping the students-
a choice to go to next year, like 1 room for new staff to go over       behavioral strategies, gross motor, what to do to help with ESP.
  those & volunteers and another room for the ones who went
               over it already to do something else.

We need new air pumps!!! It was very difficult to find one and at times
                            we couldn't!
                    Not here for keynote. No concern!                                                 Would be nice to say at sight and do -VTC-?

              Please buy new (leak-proof) air mattresses.                          I would like to see more locally developed curriculum being done, or just discussed.

Having a pump for the air mattresses readily available as this became a
            big problem. Have at least 2 pumps per site.

                               Good job :)

          Heat in the room I stayed in-either HOT! Or COLD!                              The blogging session was fun and informative. Damon did a great job.

                    I missed keynote. Is IT important.

    Keynote-Good. Too much about family. Food-Improving. Great
     conference. More time for collaboration, than previous years.

                              No concerns.
  Rooms were to dry and hot a lot the staff had sinus/stuffy problems.
                      Moisture and lower temp.

 Accomodations-Air mattresses need to be replaced. The family room
was overwhelmingly mostly single women. One of my sites families had            The water pressure for the toilets was not sufficient for the amount of people. The toilets
 to sleep in the staff room due to the single women that took over the                                             did not always flush.

   Physical-too cold Monday. Food-Great food/snacks. New mattress.
                                                                                Bathrooms an other maintenance issues were handled extremely well :) It has been kept

 Food/Accomodations-sleeping (1), Food (5). Room was either very hot
         or very cold. Spoke to the maintenance crew as well.

Thurs. tech session nice-more of this! Session posting poster was moved
  Thurs & edited a lot-confusing. Put in central location, not a hallway
                      where there's a ton of traffic.

 Monday-Thursday scheduling was awesome i.e. good pacing, relaxed.
  Thursday's sessions need to paced down if only an hour (technology
                              especially).

    2-day Presenter-Linda's presentation was scattered. ECE-Linda's
                                                                                                ECE-Julie Egli's presentations were focused and helpful.
              presentation seemed scattered. Not helpful.

  I wish I was more welcomed then being pointed my mistakes which
                      made me feel unwanted.

    Keynotes-Rambling; not useful info. 2-day Presenter-excellent.
   Food/Accomodations-ran out of many things for late session (1:00                    Dorm building smells bad, maybe you should clean carpets or something.
 lunch). Two days on same topic; too long and unproductive, 2nd day.

  Maybe the tech. Room could be the supply room. So the classroom                Snacks were only in the MPR room and hard to get to at times and some people were
            w/windows could be used for a session room.                                            filling their bags w/snack when others had none.

   Food-Improvement. Smoking as leaving the school doors…for non
                  smokers is not a good scent.

        Each year the conference is more focused! It renews us!                                                Thanks for all the extras!

     Our graduates from our district that can share what they have               Please get a keynote speaker from our district-Someone who has taught here for 25+
                            accomplished.                                                                   years. That would inspire me.

  It seems that much could have been done via VTC rather than mass
                             migration.

One day sessions instead of two so you get to go to a couple of session
                                                                                                          One hour team-time instead of two.
                           in the two days.


                     Physical-Library was very nice :)
                        Temperature in the school.                                                         High school end smells like paint.

 Physical-Classrooms fluctuated greatly in temps! Organization-Started
late at opening announcements made weren't heard as presenters kept             The evenings seemed very busy! Perhaps to coordinate activities and spread out over the
  talking…they're not listening to you Kim :) Food/Accomodations-Food           week more would be good. Pamuya was great} Thanks! Where did the seat cushions go?
    ran out-Snacks weren't available MOST times I went to get them!                                       I only saw them at the opening!
        Snacks unavailable} go back to snack tubs to each room!


Men & Women sleeping together in one room made me uncomfortable!


  Food-(1) good; Sleeping room-(10)! DO NOT put SKK in that room
 again! Freezing one day, Sweltering the next- Thanks for the cold I'm

A lot of it didn't apply to us being in the 3's not really much to change it.                                I thought Linda was very rude.

                                  Space.                                                            Great Thanks. Food/Accomodations-Do not ask.

Would be nice to have in-service 3 days then 2 days on site-especially at
                                                                                  The music concert was/awesome. Please do that annually! The kids did a terrific job-
 end of a quarter when we need to reflect, toggle, plan-all in the same
                                                                                           Kudos to them and their organizers. Kitchen crew did a great job.
                                breath.

               Snoring-Get rooms breath right nasal strips.

    I would rather see the team time used at site after or before the
   conference. It is a valuable time, but could easily be done at site.

The sessions on Thursday could have been longer, especially the Difficult
                               Student.

                                                                                 This was the best Ed. Conf. Yet that I've attended. Tons of sessions to select from and
                                                                                            best of all WE were leading each other. 2-day-Chick was great.


    Move this October Ed Conf to the first part of the year. (August)                                I liked the added team time, it was well spent.

 It is different to sleep under these conditions. I.e. room temperatures,
                           people who snore, etc.

  Keynote Speaker-Wasn't here (flew in late). Food Accomodations-I
 thought it was very unthoughtful that a teacher would leave 3 guinea
pigs and a room full of straw in her classroom. Concern-The guinea pigs
                                and straw.

                                                                                             Thanks for all you guys do to make this week bearable & fun.
   Sleeping in warm classroom. Set all temps through out at 70-72
  degrees. I'm always concerned about getting back & setting up the
    Halloween Carnival & Haunted House in time for the weekend.

              I liked team time first thing in the morning.

                                                                              Much better accommodations---really reduced the crowding:) Much better management
                                                                             of babysitting-the babysitters/crying babies in hallway-greatly improved. Thanks for doing
                                                                                                          the adapting to food needs-Great!

Keynotes-didn't get there in time-planes were late. Physical-Shaktoolik
  room too cold then too hot. Concerns-wanted handouts form other
                                sessions.
     More group get together (informal). More than just raffles!!!
                 Bonfire???Drinks???!!!Comrodery???


 I would like to see the trips to the DO limited to once a year or let one
    (shorter one) be via VTC allowing us to stay on site to work-or-
recommendation: Everybody before school October conference bring in
new staff only for 2 or 3 days…onsite="old" staff working...perhaps via
 VTC here the conf. speaker who might be in Ohio...opening speech by
       Superintendent, etc...Perhaps a message a day via VTC...


        One group meeting per year either August or October.

                   Keynote-Missed. More coffee pots.

     Have a speaker with current and relevant information that can
     encourage staff rather than tell us the same thing over again.


      Is traveling to UNK worth the expense as opposed to having              As a fellow employee put, the newness of the conference has long since worn off and I
                   Development Opportunities on site?                         personally feel that we are causing more harm than good by missing a week of school.


 Temperature: We were hot one night, cold (frozen hair b/c it was wet)
           the second and then sweltering the third night.


                                                                                 Doug & Damon did a great job-great, practical presentation in a very open & non-
                          Best conference yet.
                                                                                                            condescending manner.


Any way to streamline this even-possibly send cooks, maintenance, etc.
                                                                              I like the team time-useful. But what is the point of flying us to UNK of this (something
 at other times. Overall this training was well organized and functioned
                                                                                    that could be done at site). Maybe implement more "small session" trainings.
                                 smoothly.

     Keynote: Unthreatening? 2-day Presenter: Unthreatening? As a
 presenter, I would have liked more time to prepare. I was not allowed
 release time from my teaching duties and we also had sports activities
                      the weekend bore. No Time.


                                                                             Give out these questions at beginning of conference for time and opportunity to-think-in
                                                                                          order to answer-to catch thoughts/observations as they come.


                                                                              Presenters} had not fully explored iworks so presenters were learning with us. Actually
              Principals should not assign you to a class.                      fun for group to figure out software but at time frustration because it took so much
                                                                                                                       longer.


                                                                               Even library bathroom is filthy. Amount of mud tracked in all fall very evident. Maybe
                      Really enjoyed Tech classes.
                                                                                             carpets could be cleaned before having to sleep on them.


                            Getting home:0)                                        Always have fun coming here-ya'all do a great job w/the resources you have.


 Some of the 2 day sessions were very relevant to me but I could only
                attend one. Make (2) 1-day sessions.

No concerns, I liked the 2-day session, it gave me time to understand it
well. Last year there was too many sessions to try to remember by the
time we got back to our sites. Food/Accomodations-No air pumps when
                            you need them.

            Cover for the rubber mattresses would be nice.                                                     Great fruit and salads.

        People available w/rides for those staying with friends.                             Liked the concert, missed having Eskimo singing/dancing.

                              No concerns.                                                              Thank you for all that you've done.

                                                                             I really enjoyed the fresh fruit and vegetables that were served at every meal:):) All the
                                                                             sessions are improving every year. All the sessions I went to this October are very useful
                                                                                                      for when I return home. Learned lots :)

                     Toilet paper kept running out.

Keynote: Plane was too late. Physical-Need more grown up chairs on the
   El-ed side. Organization-I didn't pick up a packet and I still knew.       Ummm, I'm good. I loved the sequence tourney. Could we get some district games for
 Food/Accomodations-Our liaison (Randy) took care of all our problems.                                        the MPR at night?
      Concerns-Could we get more/new pumps for the mattress?


                                                                               This conference was much more beneficial than the one in August. The classes were
                              Bathrooms?
                                                                                        better, the food was better and the evening activities were great.

  Cleanliness of the school-The counters & sink in our classroom were
                         filthy--we scrubbed it!
                        Vary room assignments.
           Stay near the school with shower and not to walk.                                        Where we stayed would be good to shower.

  Keynote-Lot of info presented too fast. Organization-The boys were
  great at checking in w/the presenters and getting needed supplies.
 Food/Accomodations-Great fruit & veggies & crab salad. :) Additional
         Comments-Thank you! I fully enjoyed the in-service:)
        My biggest concern is the poor attendance of students.                                                         Thank you!

                                                                              Coffee-water stations are great. Music/Concert was a great addition. Future staff created
      The bathrooms were better but still room for improvement.
                                                                                                                village videos share.

  Could we organize sleeping by age/sex as opposed to school site?
 Various teas? Could we ask that parents bring children to showers at
                           specific times?

                Quiet place to get work done…No where.                                      Karen Beranek & Jenna Counts were FABULOUS. Thank you!!!


  2-day Presenter-Greg Wohlman/Awesome. Physical-Temperature.
Food/Accomodations-Temperature either 60 or 90. Food: great and the             The best in-service ever! A lot of relevant info., not binders for the shelf, but products
positive attitudes. Concerns-Staff integration: I noticed that other sites         that you can use at your site. Actual lesson plans with other content standards
 have the certified are together when thy go to the MPR and the Para                            incorporated in them. Thank you for getting Pamuya!!!
                  pros are by themselves going down.


    The museum walk-it is time to change it to something different.                                    Sleeping rooms were too cold or too hot.

  Keynote-NA wasn't here due to travel. 2-day & Physical-Elementary
  games. Collaboration and WIKI was absolutely incredible! Concerns-
   Guinea pigs in the room were a problem due to severe allergies. If
 teachers have animals in their rooms, maybe they can move them out
                             and vacuum.

   2-day presenter-Chick did a phenomenal job, his presentation was             This has been my third October in-service and I have to say its the best so far! Thank
                        extremely informative.                                                                          you!

When traveling my biggest concert is the dogs. I really appreciated the
                     accommodations we had.

90 minute session-wished there was a bit more personally interesting or        Liked having the ability to work on things for work. Liked all staff in attendance. Albert
relevant options i.e. SFA tutoring or Para's, wells Fargo, work sessions.                   Washington's speech was motivating, affirming, & unifying.

                     Keynote-Late flight…missed it!
              It was great, good company, and presenters.
                Keynote…Dr. Sylvester (Brain Research)

  The keynote speaker was not very engaging. I think you should try
                                                                                                                    Pamyua Great!!!
                           Dennis Litky.
Keynote-Missed it! :( Concerns-for late lunchers to make sure drinks are
                            there for them.

                                                                                  Very great appreciation for the treat of a fabulous fun concert. Very hot showers,
                                                                                               excellent, pertinent classes opportunity of credit too.


I would like to spend more time w/colleagues who are CTE instructors.                                     Very helpful session-Rand F.-iwork.

                             More air pumps.

2-day presenters-I felt left out because I was the only paraprofessional.
Food/accomodations-Food was great. Bed? Concern: The district should
 be more sympathetic to the paraprofessional, they help the teachers,
  make them fell at ease and include them in your sessions. Don't let
                             them feel left out.

   Physical-Hot/cold/hot/cold opening closing windows, fan may help.
Organization-I liked the more relaxed scheduling! Food/Accomodations-
                                                                               I was a bit concerned about "why" I had an upset stomach on days 2 & 3 when all I ate
The cooks do a great job for what they have to work with. Concerns-Our
                                                                                                  were moderate meals, no soda, and min. snacks.
sleeping room had late night and very early risers all 3 days. I didn't get
                   the rest I have gotten in the past.

                                                                              I really enjoyed the keynote when was helpful and really evoked thought. Accomodations
                    Paper waste-offer mugs for sale.
                                                                                                             were great & convenient.

    Air mattress & pumps need to be replaced. Have volunteers sort
                 mattresses and purchase new pumps.

  Pumps for airing up mattresses were scarce. When we found pumps
 there were no cords to charge them up. Going back to one pump per
             site with cords for each site would be great.

            Snorers sleep in a room & without the rest of us!

  Food/Accomodations-People were too loved the first night. Concern-
                                                                                                                   Good Job-Thanks!
           Maybe partitioning gym off-more sleeping area.

                          Excellent Conference.

   2-day presenter-Damon, Concern-Safety of possessions at home               It probably is a as good as you can be. If we have to do this, I don't know how else-until
                   (village) while everyone is here.                                              you use VTC technology! (would save a lot of cash)

   Keynote-didn’t arrive in time to hear Keynote, but took sessions.
   Physical-Fairly crowded in same sessions. Food/Accomodations-               Well done-it gets better every time-some concern with more #'s coming in all at same
  Awesome. Concern-Need new pumps-searched much for a working                                                         time!
                    pump…finally found 1 good one!

                                                                              I think these sessions are a blessing. We get input from each & every sight. Thank you for
     Keynote-Missed out :( Concern-Getting our children to school.
                                                                                                                    this opportunity.

2-day presenter-Great & helpful! Food/Accomodations-Not me! :) Food.
 Concern-I would love time to meet w/teachers by levels like lower ele.           Loved the music-more art would always be welcomed! We need better speakers.
                             Or whatever.
