My name is John and this is my 9th MET course. If all goes well, I should be flying out to BC to attend graduation next year. I suspect I’ll be the first person from my board to request a graduation leave of absence to go across the country and I have my fingers crossed that they’ll give me more than one day.
I teach a 5/6 split in a little community outside of Windsor, Ontario. I’ve been here about 10 years, and have always taught some version of grade 5, 6 or both. I love the age; they retain the eagerness of children, while being able to take on more difficult cognitive challenges.
Prior to the MET program, I generally considered myself fairly tech savvy. While the MET program has introduced me to fantastic resources, it has also really highlighted how much more I have to learn. I’m looking forward to learning with all of you this term.
