From the Teacher's Desk

A life of quality and contentment


Published on May 2, 2011

Over the past week I’ve had two great experiences as a teacher. The first one involved discovering an awesome website called ‘edu.glogster.com’.

It’s an understatement to say we live in a multimedia world. By having students use the interactive tools available on the glogster website (according to a teacher set list of criteria); we allow them another opportunity to use their creative thinking skills.

The second great teacher experience in the past week involved spending a couple of hours with about 10 of my junior high French students at a school in Medicine Hat. Being an online teacher, I don’t often get the chance to meet face to face with my students, especially in a traditional school setting.

Over the course of my teaching career, I’ve had the good fortune to work with many students who have, in essence, humbled me by their impeccable manners and respectful behavior. These French students similarly put me in awe.
