We asked teachers, what speaker or session are you most looking forward to at your upcoming teachers’ convention?
Amanda Lindhout. Her book, A House in the Sky, is one of those books that changes your life. I can’t wait to hear her talk about forgiveness and resiliency.
Joanna Pederson Schipper
Amanda Lindhout!!! And Kurt Browning. Actually I could keep going … this year’s lineup is the best in 15 years!!!

Technology can’t replace a good teacher but technology in the hands of great teachers is transformational.
Maggie Thibault @maggieavelo
To teach is to learn twice. Technology is more than a tool: reach out and teach the world!
Devon Bryce @TeachingMsB
Session on engaging reluctant readers is sending me to the bookstore.
Jenna Haugan @jennahaugan
My mission is to make sure my little ones leave each day more curious than when they arrived.
On the province’s curriculum review

Sean Beaton @backcountrynut
I want my students to be agents of change in their lives and the lives of others. #NotAboutPolitics #GoodTeaching
