My research partner and I breathed a sigh of relief as the last person walked away from our poster presentation. Success! We were finished, and not only finished but we felt so good about how it went. The day before I'd been looking at the background of the other poster-presentations and realized that most of the presenters were associated with universities, were presenting their PHD research, or a project they worked on with their research assistants. It started to look like we were WAY out of our league.

Thanks to the fabulous help we got from the TMPC to put together our posters, we at least looked professional. We were happy with our posters, but at the 1st session of poster presentations we realized most of the presenters had business cards to hand out. A trip to Office Depot fixed that and though we ended up staying up until 11pm fixing our brochures and making last minute changes, we were ready with our posters, brochures, and business cards at 7:30 the next day.
Waiting for the white-out to dry at 11pm
Though I may have been the only person at the conference without my masters, the poster session was certainly a rush. I loved discussing our research with others and getting their feedback. Bring on this year's teacher research!!
