Yep, you read that right! I am ecstatic to officially announce that I am the new Pre-Kindergarten teacher in the beautiful Hudson Bay Community School in Hudson Bay, SK for the 2016-17 school year! I will get to spend my mornings with spunky 3 and 4 year olds and my afternoons teaching Grade 6 Social Studies, Grade 5 Health and Music, and Kindergarten Art.
It is crazy that, after 4 years of university and a lifetime of knowing I wanted to grow up to be a teacher, I AM all grown up and have made it here: on the cusp of starting my dream career! Even though I adored every second of my university education, learned so much, and grew immensely as a person and future educator, I still feel as though I have no idea what I am doing (I am hoping this is something every new teacher feels – haha). But I am looking forward to having my own classroom and really jumping into the field of education with both feet.
I hope to share many of my first year teacher adventures here – when I am not buried under a pile of school work, that is. This blog has been my journal throughout my 4 years in the Faculty of Education, and I want to continue to share my journey of ‘Learning to Teach.’
Until next time,
