This blog started as a cumulative project for my B.Ed just two years ago. It was a repository of information, an online portfolio if you will, for which I received a grade (I forget what it was because I never cared!). It was a place for me to hash out everything that I had learned over the course of my year at U of Toronto.
Over the last two years, it has turned into so much more. It is a place to meet people, share ideas, post resources, and to reflect on my own practice. It has been the reflection that has been the most valuable. I don't care if anybody reads it. I do it for myself. Self reflection is the greatest resource a teacher could ever share.
With that in mind, I have a new look for a new year. Most of the old resources have been archived on the resource page. If you need anything specific, do not hesitate to ask. I will continue to post ideas, lessons, and units; however, I want to focus more of asking questions and reflecting on why I (we) do what I (we) do, rather than how.
For now though, xmas holiday beckons, and I look forward to spending some quality time with my boy, wife, and extended family.
One more week.
