I grew a lot as a teacher this summer. From stepping out of my comfort zone to teach 6 year olds in summer school for the first time, to doing a lot of professional reading, to taking another graduate course at SFU. I spent a lot of time on twitter, learning alongside my fellow connected educators and even “attended” my first webinar. I presented at a couple of Pro-D events and sat one-on-one with interested teachers sharing my love for blogging and twitter.
I read and I explored and I learned.
It was amazing and it has really made me super excited for this school year!
I know I am going to continue to grow as a teacher this year. I am travelling with the same group of lovely students into a grade I haven’t taught in a while (6/7), I am team teaching for the first time with a fantastic colleague (@hughtheteacher) and I am committed to offering my students personalized, inquiry/project/passion based learning that is both fun and meaningful to them. It is going to be an amazing journey…I can feel it!
I am so ready and cannot wait for tomorrow!
