Standards for Teacher Registration



I have read the new Standards for the Teaching Profession and will now start using them as labels for my blog posts when I have evidence to demonstrate these standards.

Personal Reflections

Timeline of milestone events in my professional life with learning both professional and personal.


This is a challenge to reflect as part of the Google Innovators Program. I have found this definitely challenging - I started and then left it for a week! It has also been very worthwhile. Somehow I do know that writing things down works for me, helps to clarify and allows ideas to settle. Somehow I keep rediscovering this as I obviously don't do it enough. Okay, I'll write it - I need to write regularly!

Always have a plan

"Even if it doesn't work, always have a plan...Without a plan I'm just throwing things against a wall and seeing what sticks. If something does work I can't necessarily identify what it was. With a plan, even if it does not work, I can look back on it, reflect on why it didn't work and actually learn something."

Lurking, Commenting, Creating


Lurking can have negative connotations.

I think lurking when online is reasonable behaviour and allows users to understand what is going on, to see how to behave, how to like, post, and what sorts of things people are sharing and commenting on.
