I was invited to come to Park Manor on November 8 to meet with the Principal and the grade 6 teachers to talk about ways I could support what they were doing in the classroom. Luckily for the staff, collaboration periods have been built into their timetables so that they actually have a chance to formally get together and have that really important time to discuss, plan and implement.
For this particular meeting, my focus was on the Virtual Library, The Education Library and the NFB. My intent was to put a face to my name and give them a taste of what we could offer in terms of support. Luckily for me, I knew a couple of the teachers so I was able to build on that already existing relationship.
It was a great meeting so I’m hoping that I will be invited back out to work with the teachers and their students.
