In these parts, public school starts two weeks from today. I’ll still continue in my occasional teaching role (at least to start the year), but it will be in two school boards.
Yes! I got hired by the school board that I actually live in, so I’m very excited about that!
Since I do not have classes to prep for the Fall, I haven’t been thinking all that much, or deeply, about teaching lately. Though it’s been a nice summer break, and I’ve gotten lots of knitting done, I’m starting to get the teaching itch!
So, to get myself back in the teaching headspace, I’m doing a few things:
- I’m reading Mindset by Carol Dweck
- I’m taking part in the NEW New Teacher Chat (check it out here – it’s a slow chat, with questions posted once a week, and all the responses are done using Flipgrid).
- I started the process of getting my Google Educator Certification – Level 1
- I *just* signed up to take part in the IMMOOC (Innovator’s Mindset Massive Open Online Course)
