I love what I do. I love being passionate about preparing young students to be the best they can be and to help them develop the skills necessary to be positive contributors to their rapidly evolving community.

This passion has led me to look at modern learning practices and how they can be designed to affect the attitudes that learners bring from their outside community into their learning environment. This interest has led me to explore how modern learning practices can be designed to replicate the core values needed to participate and contribute in a healthy and positively functioning community?

Last year I was afforded the opportunity to be a CORE Education "Dr Vince Hame efellow". The work I did allowed me to explore the concept of "community" as seen through the eyes of our students. And it helped me to learn from my students how we could co-create an environment that would reflect their vision of what a positive community could be.

Below is a link to the work we did.

WHAT CAN WE LEARN ABOUT COMMUNITY FROM OUR STUDENTS?
