OVERWHELMED by Distance Learning and Remote ONLINE Learning?

4 WAYS TO HELP YOUR STUDENTS the challenges of DISTANCE LEARNING:

  1. REMIND students how to be GOOD CITIZENS to help our school and our global community.
  2. EXPLAIN the COMMUNICATION process so we communicate more effectively - in person or from home.
  3. DEVELOP a growth mindset and build CHARACTER during uncertain times.
  4. THINK CRITICALLY: analyze information, form opinions, and make decisions based on logic and high-quality information instead of fear and emotion.

FOLLOW my store and SUBSCRIBE to my email newsletter so you don't miss out!


My teaching style:

I am passionate about the following 3 things:

  1. A STRATEGY-BASED GROWTH MINDSET APPROACH: I believe in helping students to try to find a growth mindset. I believe that using strategies can help students to reach their academic and non-academic goals.
  2. DIGITAL LITERACY: I regularly integrate technology into my program. Over the years, I have explored everything from BYOD to chromebook carts to COWs to laptop pods and 1:1 technology models. I like using google docs and google slides with my students. I am exploring using Google Classroom as a framework to have students submit work and receive marks.
  3. EQUITY EDUCATION and SOCIAL JUSTICE: I believe in choosing resources and materials that raise awareness and hopefully inspire students to help make the world a better place. I have to teach the curriculum. I get to choose the resources that I use to guide my students through the curriculum.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Some cool moments so far:

  • The day one of my parents nominated me for an Excellence in Teaching Award.
  • Winning a Teacher Appreciation Contest and going overseas to help rebuild a school.
  • Winning a digital interactive whiteboard for my classroom by tweeting how I use technology in my class
  • The day a former student told me I was the most influencial male influence in his life.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My Bachelor of Education is from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto.

My superhero power is the ability to look at myself in the mirror with my eyes closed.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I try to make the world a better place.

I do this by showing students how to stand up for themselves and for others. Oh. And, I also make lesson plans and other digital products.

NOTE: I am not participating in the School Access program

Sorry for any inconvenience, but the Educircles 21st-century products will not be available in the School Access catalog at this time.

There are many reasons, but one of the biggest reasons is that I don't want you to have to pay for my resources year-after-year which is what you would currently have to do in the School Access.

My belief is that once you purchase a resource from Educircles.org, it's yours for life. Including any updates.

There are more reasons. If you'd like to know more about why I opted out, read this post.

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
