In Quebec, all students are expected to be in school under normal ratios, that means the same teacher:student ratio in effect at a given school as before Covid-19. (I still find it mind-boggling that the exact same directive goes for schools in Montreal with over 29 000 cases of the virus as schools in the… Continue reading Bridging the online / offline / simultaneous teaching gap
On Thursday morning, someone from CBC News contacted me for a live interview later that afternoon. It was to talk about back-to-school in Quebec and concerns from a teaching perspective. It ended up being cancelled, I think Rob Ford bumped me on Thursday and something else did on Friday. These things happen. Before they cancelled,… Continue reading A back-to-school like no other

(epilogue)

But when I went to fill out the questionnaire, I realized that, though I teach in the public system in Quebec, my experience didn’t… Continue reading English Sector Exclusion: A story in 3 parts.
When we were told to keep in contact with our students, it didn’t have to all be via Zoom. I was reading through the comments on a Facebook post just now about fighting with children to do their homework and to get on their Zoom meetings. When I saw this comment (I hid the commenter’s picture… Continue reading How you Zooming?
I originally wrote this back in December, on another blog. At the time, webinars were just a thing some of us did sometimes. Who knew just how prevalent they’d become in a few short months! So I thought, why not, I’ll republish it here at Leading from the Heart. Because a webinar can absolutely be… Continue reading Revisiting Designing Webinars that Matter
