It’s Saturday, and another school week is in the books. Time to reflect on the week that was, and recharge for the next challenge.
This week has seen me take (what I hope will be) a positive turn in my teaching and learning: flipped learning. On Tuesday, I attended a flipped learning professional development day, and I was left in awe of how the presenter has embraced flipped learning and the passion she has for it. I left the day so inspired, and I have already put what I have learned into action, creating some flipped videos of my own!
There was, however, a negative in the week, with news from BOSTES that if I were to put in my application for Highly Accomplished Teacher status, I would have a low likelihood of success. That was a downer, however, I see it as a great learning experience, because now I can reassess and improve my practice in the areas they indicated that need work.
Last night was the school’s annual trivia night to raise money for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. Whilst my team didn’t win, we managed to raise about $6000 for the hospital. It was a fun night, and I’m looking forward to next year!
