A reason I want to become a teacher…

February 16, 2014

Out on my walk this morning I saw this gorgeous little flower.









It would of been all of 30cm high.










What I loved the most was that someone has lovingly placed a stake near it and tied it up so it would prosper.


I listened to an awesome 891 Conversations Podcast this morning from Phil Beadel,  a man intent on transforming how students are engaged at school, by harnessing their curiosity and energy to achieve better educational outcomes. Teachers are highly important in scaffolding students in helping them learn to be learners.

I guess you could draw parallels between the person lovingly ‘scaffolding’ the flower and teachers ‘lovingly’ scaffolding students.


Made me smile it did.


And now, with all that positivity in me,  I am off to finish that essay – on guess what – reforming education in the middle years…. so very apt.
