One can dream… my perfect job!

Ah! What would be my perfect job in education?  Well, I am passionate about my role as a classroom teacher. I also love sharing and feel I have something to contribute to others. I love to trial new teaching and learning ideas and see what impact they have on student learning.  I get so much from witnessing children’s growth emotionally, academically and socially. So my ideal job would combine both, time in the classroom at my school and time working with teachers at another school – four days in the classroom and one day as a coach. I wouldn’t expect others to do what I’m not doing myself. What a shame this job doesn’t exist! Maybe, its time for a career change.

You can only dream… Cheers Nina

Nina’s Arena – What brought you here yesterday? I’d love to know…

Yesterday I had over 200 hits on my blog. I usually average 40 to 100 a day but 200 is fairly rare. When you write a blog, you know what countries people come from, what searches some people have made, but that’s about it. Two hundred hits is astounding and I’d love to know what people were reading.  I have no comments left by visitors, but ‘hey’ thanks for visiting and I hope you found my blog interesting. I’ll never know!

Cheers Nina

The Dolphin Research Centre: Exploring the rockpools at our local beach with Ben 10.

It’s a ten minute walk down to the beach from my school and how lucky we are to have this wonderful environment at our door step. Ben from the Dolphin Research Centre is passionate about our bay and his knowledge of the creatures that live there is amazing. Our students are very fortunate to have the opportunity to listen and explore with Ben. Ben introduces life in the rock pool, explains how to explore rock pools safely and how these amazing water spaces support small creatures. The children are totally engaged and have returned to school with many wonderings to explore and answer.

I’ll be following our rock pooling adventure with a Student Led Interactive Writing session. Our focus will be using adjectives and joining words. Keep visiting!

Cheers Nina
