Teachers are Learners, too!

Published by at 8:38 PM under Teacher Talk and tagged: , , ,

You might be wondering why Miss B. is so tired this week…and it’s ONLY Tuesday!

Well, I went to Hong Kong to take some workshops at a school called Hong Kong International School (HKIS) who was hosting this event.  Teachers from Singapore, Taipei, Shanghai, Thailand and other places gathered together to hear and learn from experts and published authors in Reading and Writing.  I know I learned a lot and this makes me a better teacher!

I absolutely LOVE my job and get really excited when I learn new things that will help me get even better.

I’m a forever learner.

What Miss B felt like Monday morning after a jam-packed weekend!

(Ok, I may have mustered up enough energy to do a little shopping after a full day of workshops, as you can see in some of the pictures below. But, I couldn’t resist!)

    Hello Miss B
    I agree that it is always important to be a learner. Our school motto is ‘Takatu-ana te ako a mate-noa’, which translated from Maori means ‘Engage in life long learning’.

    Even after 30 years of teaching I enjoy being challenged by new ideas and it’s amazing how the idea of the most effective pedagogy has changed over the years.

    Going to Hong Kong for professional development would be an adventure.
    Do you have the opportunity to do much traveling?
    Do you have a school motto?

    Hi Mrs. McKenzie,
    Thanks for visiting us! I love your school motto. It’s really beautiful. Ideas about ‘effective pedagogy’ are ever-evolving, and quite cyclical!

    Hong Kong was amazing. Going there for the weekend was way too short. Living in Thailand, I am blessed to be able to travel quite often. In 1 week we have a week long holiday and I’ll be taking that opportunity to visit Beijing–The Great Wall, among other places in Beijing and then travel to Xian to see the Terracotta Warriors.
    Our school’s motto is:
    Inspired Students,
    Inspired Teaching,
    Inspired Learning.

    We hope you continue to visit our blog!
    Miss B.
