Yay! I finally have something tangible in the teaching world - An interview!
I have been furiously writing resumes and cover letters the last month and hadn’t heard anything back, so when I listened to my voicemail after being out of country for a couple days… you can imagine how excited I was. I just about dropped everything in the middle of the Toronto Pearson Airport!
This week will be all about getting my portfolio ready, I’m thinking of going completely digital on that front, so wish me luck!
Well, I can’t believe three months have passed since I last posted. I’m finally settled into my new apartment, and I’ve finished my FSL course (only 2 parts to go!), so I’m back in the game looking for teaching jobs for the coming school year. Fingers crossed!
One thing on my mind though, is how it’s already January and I keep thinking of what we were doing for the film festival at this point last year. I’m so sad not to be working with the students on their videos, but I’m glad to help out any way I can - even from afar! Hopefully I will get a sneak peak of what they’ve been up to soon, and will help edit some of the movies :) so I can post more about it in the coming weeks/months.
Happy New Year!
Well, I’m a few weeks into my FSL course, one module down and feeling good about immersing myself in the language again! Now if finding an apartment only came so easily. November is only 21 days away and I’m getting very nervous about having a place to live :S.
I’m also very much missing Churchill right now. The first 2 months of school are almost over and I haven’t even had a chance to visit yet. I hope to get over there to say hi to everybody soon!
I am officially registered in FSL Part 1. So I will be “going back to school” in the fall after all! Time for a Staples shopping spree!
Sorry for the lateness of this post - it’s been a long time coming, but I’ve been hard at work applying for teaching jobs. Cross your fingers for me in this tough time to enter the professional world of teaching!
Anyway, here’s the video from this year’s Stop-Motion Film Festival! Another great success - students and parents alike enjoyed both viewings . Thank you to everybody who contributed to this project - teachers, faculty, parents, volunteers, but most importantly the students! We could not have pulled this off without you all.
The Churchill Stop-Motion Film Festival is almost a month away!!
Today Tiiu and I decided the final details for the 2013 Stop-Motion Film Festival and started editing some of the videos students filmed over the last few months!
Last year’s festival was wildly successful, and the students had a blast filming, and this year will be even better! Here is last year’s video to get you pumped up!
