Hi, I am going to give blogging a shot! Since September, and being back in the classroom, I have hummed and hawed about whether I should start this blog to hopefully connect with the students and parents I have the privilege of serving. It is always easier to ask someone else to stretch than to actually do it yourself. Therefore here it is!
I want to be clear that this blog will be aimed most specifically at Grade 7, 8, 9, and 10 English students of Ecole Regionale Saint-Jean-Baptiste and their parents, but will be open to everyone. Much of what we do in class will be made available here.
Pauline (my wife) and I both believe that education is very important and is the key to fulfilling, satisfying life in a rapidly changing world. Education will have a much broader meaning as we move forward. The system of education is in a period of revolution as it transforms to meet the needs of the 21st Century and the students who live in it. Now more than ever before students can “own” their education, as they have access to the best people in just about ever area of life. Exciting times!
