  2. Hi Stacy,
    Welcome to blogging. I love your theme and how you used a numbered list for the things that you like, it makes your post really easy to read.

    I am not teaching or learning in school this year so I am going to share 10 things that I love about learning:
    1. Everyone has something to learn, everyone has something to teach
    2. I love learning things I didn't know
    3. I love learning with others: collaborating or co-creating
    4. Learning happens all the time, even when I am not "studying"
    5. I love the feeling of making connections between things I already knew and new ideas
    6. I learn from my students all the time
    7. You can learn from someone, even if they don't know they are teaching you
    8. I love the learning that happens when people are interested in what they are learning/doing
    9. I love learning with others, Dave Cormier calls it Rhizomatic Learning (
    10. I try and learn something new every day.

    Enjoy classes on Monday. Keep blogging!

  5. Hi Stacey! I love how you started your blog.

    I spent 29 years in schools after my own 13 years as a student. This year I am not in a single school but I visit many schools. Here are 10 things I miss about school:

    1) Talking to students. I really miss walking through the halls and learning from the students in my building.
    2) School special event meals. My last school held big event meals, like Christmas Dinner for everyone in our school community. It was awesome.
    3) Talking to the bus drivers. At the end of the school day I would walk outside and catch up with the news from the bus drivers while the students got their stuff at their lockers.
    4) Talking to teachers. I LOVED when teachers would come into my office and bounce new ideas around for events and collaborations.
    5) Impromptu lessons - When I would walk into a classroom, sometimes the teacher would ask me to teach something and I loved that.
    6) PD Days - Students are happy to have a day off but the rich learning with teachers was inspiring.
    7) Sports Days - Cheering on our athletes
    8) Community use of schools - our schools are the centre of the community and I loved to see the events in the evenings that happened in our gym and our classrooms
    9) Standing at the door every morning to welcome the sleepy faces to school.
    10) Standing at the door every afternoon to say goodbye to the students and wish them a safe journey home...
    ...and so many other things. School is awesome. I miss it. Enjoy every minute!

  6. Hi Stacy,

    6. Teachers that make jokes
    7. Friends in their classes
    8. Projects
    9. anything on computers
    10. Creating things (painting in Art)
    Happy blogging!
