A Victorian for a Day

“Make sure you remember to put that scarf on!” shouted my mum as I left her to start the walk into the school playground, “You won’t look like a Victorian if you don’t put it around you like a shawl!”. Months of hard work and dedication had led to this day, the day where we […] Continue reading

Teaching Across Subject Boundaries – Favorite Topic

When I was in Primary 7, we had two big topics which I really enjoyed. One of these was World War II, and the other was Australia. I enjoyed these topics hugely because they were very interactive and we as a class were ‘thrown’ into living and experiencing the lives that people relating to each […] Continue reading

How my first Winter Assessment at university was critical to my professional development.

Being first year at university, the first semester was split in half between my academic responsibilities of attending classes and completing assignments and my social life, whether that be with the rugby team or forming new friendship groups. The cycle of trying to balance both of these aspects continued until mid November when assessments for […] Continue reading

Journal + Online = Adventure

Recently, I’ve been trying to think of new ways of doing things. Not that my brain isn’t ‘working’ but perhaps, you could say I’m racing at 20mph on a 50mph road. Real fact: years ago, my driving instructor used to constantly remind me to increase the speed on motorways. But, as my brain was on … Continue reading “Journal + Online = Adventure” Continue reading

Little, you are ever so greater than big!

Warning… this is rather reflective and pretty (kind of) personal! Sometimes one bad thing seems to come knocking at the door – and then many things happen. It’s best not to discuss these, as we all have our own hills to climb. But, sometimes amazing things occur too. After the past few months, the end … Continue reading “Little, you are ever so greater than big!” Continue reading

It’s not meetings… it’s CIRCLE TIME!

I always like a quick reflection here and there. And I always do love a few Christmas decorations here and there. But, you see, it’s only the 11th of November – lots more days left – and we are already seeing Starbucks sell your coffee because… ‘you really want that Christmas tree cup.’ I was … Continue reading “It’s not meetings… it’s CIRCLE TIME!” Continue reading
