The Native Access to Engineering Programme in Canada has long invested in supporting primary and secondary teachers. They have a bi-weekly newsletter which brings suggestions for science, math, and engineering resources. They also run an annual conference.
Teacher Magazine tossed this question into the TLN Forum If you were writing a mini-memoir of your teaching life, what would your six words be? Your memoir might be funny, inspirational, profound, mundane, deeply true. Want to play? Mull it over, doodle with pen and napkin or your favorite digital tool, and post your memoir for all of us to read.
Here are a few of their favourites –
They asked. I listened. We learned.
– Every day is a new adventure. –
Exercised the muscle of the mind.
– Please, don’t ask me for more!
– Daily empowering students who learn differently.
– Teacher, warrior, fighting for the future.
– We learned by doing, always curious.
– Untied shoelaces, missing front teeth – elementary!
– Learning as much as I teach.
– Active noisy classroom means brains working.
Since it’s summer, we throw the challenge out to you. Bonus points for those that reference with science, math and / or teaching indigenous students.
