Planning for September feels like hitting the 'reset button', in life -- a new beginning, a moment to pause and consider next actions.
To accomplish some of my long terms goals as a teacher, writer and parent, I want to become a consistent blogger.
Here my goals for this blog:
1. Practice my quick, reflective writing without getting bogged down in perfection. As Jillian Michaels says in one of her fitness DVD's, "Perfect is Boring." This relates to the work I need to do on my writing process as a new part-time MFA student.
2. Reflect on my role as a teacher in the Ontario Secondary school classroom in 2015. I hope that my posts can become a point of conversation for other educators, parents and students. I am especially excited by the new initiatives at WRDSB and I am very proud to be an educator in the Ontario public system.
3. Articulate ideas and reflections I have stored in my mind about all things that so that I canget them out into the world so that I might sharpen my thinking through conversation and dialogue.
