Exploring Deconstruction and Construction of Media Literacy in Education Today
The VSRA conference supported my professional development in a way that no other professional development experience has. I was able to collaborate with people in varying aspects of our field. This allowed me to build contacts and resources that I would not have had access to otherwise. I met Professors, Researchers, Authors, Superintendents, Reading Specialist, expert teachers, and other graduate students. The experience was irreplaceable for me. I have grown professionally and academically. Presenting in class or demonstrating lessons for faculty or students is no longer a situation that makes me anxious. Experiencing presenting in this forum gave me the necessary tools to further my academic career and my professional career.
