Quick Update as we transition from SA to Kenya

I am writing this while being bumped and jolted along miles of deeply rutted highways on the plains below the Great Rift Valley as we travel to the Maasai Mara for team building. After we landed in Nairobi, We met seven additional members to TWBC who will form a second team providing maths, science and Eng;lish prof dev opportunities to two additional locations in Kenya. Maasai pastoralists, dressed in their traditional brighly coloured blankets, can be seen leading their herds of cattle, sheep… Continue

Chronicling Africa Part 1 with TWBC09

(Simul-posted on

I have been on the road now for nearly a week now after finishing a crazy academic year of much travel and one of the best teaching years I can remember. The last few weeks have been a flurry of submitting reports, packing for a conference in DC and Africa, saying goodbye to staff and students at one school and meetings and introductions to a new school. When I return from Africa in late August, I will officially begin my new job of directing… Continue

Thinking about the "What's Next?"

The suitcases are unpacked, the souvenirs mostly distributed, the jet lag has almost worn off, and the photos are slowly been sifted.

Fortunately, I had a few days to catch my breath and slowly digest the experiences, conversations, and encounters of the past 7 weeks. There is a part of me that doesn't want to start letting go of it. My dreams every night are filled with African faces and African landscapes.

Practically… Continue

Not only do I teach at College Charlemagne, but I'm also a CC high school alumnus! Before doing my placements in Ottawa, that was basically the only school I had ever known... I do like it, but it's nice to get some experience outside those walls!

The Study is quite the prestigious school. Have you been teaching there for long?

I don't currently keep a blog, but I do want to start one at the beginning of the school year, along with a website for my students and a repertory of all the links I've bookmarked over time, all related to ICT and other school subjects. I'm still new on the teaching scene, but I've found so many teacher blogs in the past few months that have been quite inspiring, so I'm hoping to join that network in the near future!

Keep in touch!

Hi Sharon,

it's nice to meet a fellow Montreal-area ICTish colleague :) I taught at Collège Charlemagne (in Pierrefonds) for three years, and will be going back next August. Right now though, I'm completing the Formation à l'éducation program at the U of Ottawa. My initial undergrad was in MIS at Concordia, but once I started teaching at my old high school, I fell in love with the profession!
Slowly but surely, I'm starting to develop a network of like-minded professionals and a whole lot of ICT-related resources.
From reading your blog (very interesting!), I'd eventually like get involved in promoting new ways of integrating technology into the classroom. Also, I'm planning to be in Africa during the summer of 2011 for some travelling and volunteering, so it would be great to do it through TWB!

So what school do you teach at in Montreal?

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Am willing to do anything on this end until I can get a summer to join you guys in Africa. Will probably get my wife involved here to. She teaches AP English at Vincent Massey and is currently working towards her Masters in Curriculul development.Any suggestions as to what I could do would be appreciated.

Hi Sharon -

I haven't had time to breathe this month nor to thank you for coming to ICE! It was great to spend a bit of time with you! I think your sessions were really well received and inspirational.

I'm off to Wisconsin this weekend for WEMTA and will see Jen at this conference. One of my sessions is on global education and I'm planning on discussing your work. I'm giving participants a link to your toolkit spreadsheet in case they'd like to add their two cents if you don't mind! I'd love to see what people are suggesting.

Anyway, let's keep in touch...

From your bio it seems that we have similar teaching backgrounds, i.e. ELA, ICT, Literacy. At the risk of sounding self-promoting my book, The Struggle for Literacy, was published a few months ago. I am also very much involved in media literacy associations, provincially and nationally which I co-founded.

I'm anxious to discuss these things with you.

Looking forward to meeting you in March.

Hi Sharon,
We met at the Study at Chris Betcher's workshop. I work at St. George's as a tech consultant.

Unfortunately, I'm already tied up for this summer but I've forwarded the invite on to the Appleby faculty and hopefully there will be more joining.
