For the first time in 11 years, I'm heading back to school as a student - in the formal sense of the word - not just as a lifelong learner. I'm going to be a part time M. Ed. student at Nipissing University and I'm looking forward to engaging discussions and course work as I begin that journey. I hope that I can use this blog to reflect on my experiences with the M. Ed. work and also make connections to the work I do as a DLRT.
So, with that in mind, it's time to challenge myself to post to this space on a weekly basis. I've challenged myself before, and failed, but I think it's important to keep trying. I'm not promising that it will always be inspiring thoughts, and I think it will take some time before I develop a consistent voice and theme for the blog, but, I've placed this work on my weekly to-do list, so hopefully I will.
For all of the other teachers out there who are just getting started with your students, I hope you have a wonderful year!
