Last week an idea came to me. I was going through the many messages I received from my feature on 'The Cult of Pedagogy' and was thinking to myself how incredible my journey has been in education. It made me think of all the educators I've worked with and wonder what their story was. Was it similar to mine? Did they stumble into education or dream about it since they were kids? Sometimes I feel that we don't realize that behind every teacher, early childhood educator, teaching assistant, and child and youth worker, is a human who also was a student once upon a time. It made me curious to know who they are beyond the classroom.
So...I've decided to start a weekly blog featuring a different educator. I don't know what else to say other than I am excited. I'm also so grateful that the Universe brought this concept to me as I feel it will benefit aspiring educators and current ones in our classrooms.
Believe it or not, it was very difficult creating the questions! I was answering a few of the questions myself which led to me self reflecting about what it was like being a student and hooooow I even ended up back in the classroom! But...I got it done. 18 questions that I am absolutely confident you will enjoy answering.
These are just a few of the questions you'll receive if you sign up to be featured:
Up for answering the rest? Send me a message via the contact tab and you'll receive an email with the remainder of the questions. Within 12 hours of initially announcing this new project, I had 8 individuals sign up.
Look out for their stories as I am certain there's much to learn!
...and people wonder why I love my job.
