One hurdle that I specifically had to overcome was that I had a new job, new position to my school
, and a book to read for reference. My principal was very supportive but there was no trainings or observations I could go to because of Covid
. I had to study. I read everything I could find on ABL
. I watched youtube videos and set up my lab the best I could. I knew the only way I could get teachers to listen to me was to actually know what I was talking about. I went to the first ABL Summit
available and learned that there isn't a wrong way and that I was doing this whole thing correctly. I also learned there was so much more to it. The Summit
in the Summer is so informative and helpful.
