Poet Prints Collaboration: Tech Tools for the Inclusive Classroom

Slide1This week I collaborated with the awesome educator behind Poet Prints, Rachel Poetker. She is an awesome, talented, and passionate Canadian elementary school teacher who, like me, loves to share her learning strategies and resources with the greater education world. You can find all her amazing curricular designs on her TeacherspayTeachers store.

As you all know I love collaborating with other bloggers -whether it is swapping resources or contributing posts I always learn something new. This week I shared some of my favourite literacy tools for an inclusive classroom with the readers of Poet Prints. Head over to her blog to check it out and be sure to poke around a bit. She has a lot of great things to share!

Uvic’s Booklum: Top Ten Books for Learning Support Teachers

img_0985

I mentioned last week that I have been connecting with educators all over the place the last several months. Awhile back the incredible librarian of the Curriculum Library at my undergrad university, University of Victoria, asked me to compile my list of top ten resources for Learning Support Teachers. Bookulum, the top ten series, was created” as a way for us to feature themed book lists recommended by experts in and around our Education and Library community.” I am so honoured to have been asked to be included. Be sure to check out the other book lists because they are equally amazing.  You can also download a PDF version of my article here.

The University of Victoria is where I learned to be a teacher; Columbia University is where I honed the skills they instilled in me. Uvic was such good soil for me to grow in.  It was there that met some of the most talented, dynamic educators that I now have the fortune of calling close friends. So I am beyond excited to still be connect to the community -even though I live on the other side of the continent. I am loving seeing what Uvic Education is doing to impact the greater teaching community. I hope you are as inspired as I am as you peruse their collected resources and fund of knowledge.
