I wonder where do teachers who are not connected, who do not belong to Pinterest, who do not read blogs and who rarely go to TeachMeets get new ideas from? I wonder in fact, if perhaps they don’t? I wonder if the reason there are still so many blog posts and presentations to be found on ‘creating 21st century learners’ means that in most schools teachers still continue to work in ways they always have?
It is at moments when I am musing like this, that I feel thankful for all that I have. I work as part of an amazing team at an amazing school. A school that allowed me to explore my passion for blogging during a week in the UK recently. A school where we are encouraged to continuously push the boundaries in thinking, reading, teaching and learning. I feel thankful too that I genuinely love to learn and that more than anything I love to try new ideas in my classroom. As we move towards inquiry based learning, l I know that there are many new challenges ahead. More to learn and more to change.
Are you like me, a connected teacher? Do you love to learn? Do you thrive on new challenges? Would you like to become part of a dedicated and hard working team of teachers, who continuously strive to meet their students learning needs in interesting and new ways?
If you answered yes and you live in Sydney. Check out last weeks job’s pages at the Sydney Morning Herald as we have a maternity leave position coming up next year. Come and join an amazing team at an amazing school. Work harder than you ever thought possible and love every minute of it.
