This 2019-2020 school year marks my 20th year as an educator. My journey started in Cleveland, Ohio in the same elementary school I attended as a child. That August in 2000, I joined a wonderful team of colleagues, some of whom were my very own elementary teachers, and met my very first Grade 2 class. I will always remember that class and thank each of my students for helping me become the teacher I am today.
After five years of teaching in Cleveland, I left the states and have since taught in international schools in Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore and currently, Finland. Each year I continued to grow and learn in my practice. Each new student, class, parent, school, colleague, country taught me something that I now carry with me.
My goal this year is to share 20 new blog posts in honour of my 20th year of teaching as I continue to learn through sharing and engaging with other educators around the world.
Have a great school year and keep learning!
