Connecting with “Why?”

I’ve been thinking a lot of this idea of my “Why?” – raison d’être as we say in the French Immersion biz – this week because I took part in a fantastic webinar on Saturday with Dr. Jody Carrington. I made this Sketchnote because I LOVE making and sharing Sketchnotes, and I was thrilled with the positive feedback from my fellow educators. I love this because it’s fun, it helps me process what I am hearing, and it helps me share my learning with others for maximum benefit.


That love of sharing, and getting rolling with Dr. Carrington’s online course this week, inspired me to revive my teaching blog. I’m not about to list all the times this has happened, give one of those “Sorry for not posting in so long” posts, or make any big promises to my blog, but I do have some ideas I’d like to explore in future posts – whether that ends up being here or on my teacher Instagram: @madame_i_am. (I’ve found a really great Instagram community of primary French Immersion teachers that provides me with so much incredible inspiration, and that format has served me quite well in recent years.)

What have you been thinking about this week?

I am a French Immersion teacher fuelled by chocolate, leopard print, and family & friends. I love sharing and hearing new ideas.
