I’M A TEACHER
I was once an idealist. Now I’m more of a realist.
I once believed that our political leaders could positively change the face of education in my country. No longer.
I have dreams. They’ve been shattered – twice.
My first year of teaching left me feeling alone and disillusioned.
BUT, 2 YEARS ON …
I once believed I could make a difference. I still do.
I’ve rediscovered my passion for teaching.
I believe that effective literacy teaching and ICT integration is critical to prepare my students to communicate and interact on a global stage.
I’ve finally had the opportunity to practice what I preach
I’m a blogger, with a supportive global audience.
I’m becoming a more competent and effective teacher.
My teaching and learning is changing because of my global connections.
I’ve yet to have a class of my own.
I’ve got a lot to learn.
I’m not an expert teacher … yet.
That’s why I connect, learn, share, and collaborate with experienced, expert teachers around the world.
My PLN has reawakened my passion for teaching
For this, I thank you.
