  1. George, for the 17th year in a row, I administered the Grade 6 Ontario Provincial EQAO Test in Reading, Writing and Math. The success of my class may be measured (by some) by the numbers published in September. I have always prided myself in teaching to the child and not to the test or text. My students experienced many valuable learning opportunities outside of the classroom and the textbook. They were innovative http://www.cbc.ca/1.3072522 , creative

    learners with a strong desire to make a difference in the world

    Thank you for encouraging me and others to share the “human side” of education and to empower my students. I believe these stories say much more about my class and my students than any number ever will!

  2. It was very clear when you came to spend time with our District that you are passionate about the human element in education. The ideas you put forward here are not only good ones, but they are completely doable, which is important when it comes to the busy lives of teachers and schools. I know that we have been talking about creating a video newsletter and since your visit, many more of our Educators are capturing good work in photos and posting them to our Twitter hashtag. All of these things, really do contribute to a sense of community, so thank you! I love the idea of Shareski’s “Year in Photos” that you share here. How powerful would it be for a class’s culminating project to be a digital portfolio called, “A Year of Learning?” Then, time could be set aside to reflect and document learning the whole year (or semester long).

  3. The next level. Using this work on innovation to inspire our future direction at our leadership team planning tomorrow. We live a growth mindset, so now what?
