This class is THE most complex one that I’ve had the privilege of teaching. I am learning how to use the range of adaptive equipment; put the breaks on wheelchairs, standing frames and Kelly chairs, lower the Jenx chairs so that they’re at the same height as the other children while sitting, remove and reattach […]…

Week 0: The Ottoman

January 25, 2020 | 0 COMMENTS

Last week, we were given a very generous amount of time to spend in our classrooms to get ready for the year. One of the things that I wanted to do was upholster the ottoman pictured above. This isn’t really about the before and after of that process-actually I didn’t even take a before photo […]…

I can’t believe it’s 2020. That doesn’t even sound like a real year to me yet!

To my surprise, going through stage 1 of the accreditation process taught me things and brought to light not only professional development, but an opportunity for personal development as well. These are realisations that make me squirm. Admitting that I’m good at something is far harder for me to do than to look at where […]…

What I learned from Stage 1 Submission

August 24, 2019 | 0 COMMENTS

On the 26th of July 2019, I submitted my evidence for Highly Accomplished Teacher certification. In all honesty, it took me a long time to even get to that point, with many self-arguments in between. This post is mostly going to focus on that and the lessons I’ve learned (and are still learning), which were […]…

In loving memory of Natalie

August 5, 2017 | 0 COMMENTS

In loving memory of Natalie Teaching is an incredibly challenging and complex profession. The statistics, that we tend to leave after only five years have become all too familiar. We are told that we cannot do it alone, that to survive we must build a support network, that we need to find our marigolds. I’ve […]…
