The Reimagine Education community has given me a new vitality to this difficult job of public school teaching – this award competition and conference with my fellow #reimaginers has expanded my mind to the endless possibilities and potential that education holds for me, my students, and the rest of the world. We are truly in the midst of a global knowledge revolution – and education has never been more exciting!
I am beginning a new teaching assignment in September at Birch Cliff Public School (BCPS) – and I know the students there will be great, but they have a hard act to follow after my previous students at Robert Service Sr PS (these kids were outstanding), where The Bootstrapping Checklist was Shortlisted in 2016. The students at BCPS will have an opportunity to participate in the Bootstrapping Checklist this coming academic year, and I am excited about that.
I will announce some new program partnerships and some established ones for the BCPS community in September, when the school year starts – for now, I am excited to share my achievement as Judge for the 2017 Reimagine Education Awards, and to encourage students in the (especially) K-12 space to apply for the Student-Led Innovation Award – an excellent opportunity to encourage our youngest and brightest to participate in this important and inspiring yearly event.
Thanks much and enjoy the rest of the summer!!
