I keep telling them that they need to think positively, try even when things may seem difficult, and continue to dream. Now it is my turn to listen to my own words and follow them.
So far, I have managed to erase my pages on the website several times and I have yet to figure out how to add links, widgets, and other things unless the page is already set up to click the prepared box. However, I have managed to create a website and start this blog, so the rest will come, right?
I love this picture because it is the essence of teaching from the perspective of the carver. She is a teacher, and she works with First Nations students, including her own children. She did this carving as part of an annual carving competition we have here each summer. It is hard to believe this used to be a log.
This website was created so that I could share with other teachers and I hope that in time I will be able to effectively use this for collaborating across the continents with like minded people. We are no longer bound by the place where we live. Teachers are very special people and they change lives wherever they are.
The above pictures are from my grandson's preschool in South Korea and my classroom a couple of years ago in Campbell River. I would love to add other class photos, but I have to make sure the privacy of my students is protected. I will have to take more photos that don't show faces. The picture from Korea was taken at a public performance so I am able to use it.
I would appreciate some feedback and suggestions for making this blog useful to others. Be gentle, please.
