Teacher: what is an example of when differentiation doesn’t work?
Student: well if you have to make a cabinet in a cabinet making class then you can’t do an interpretive dance to show you understand cabinet making

Welcome to my corner of the universe!
I love to write, I love to travel, and I love to inspire. When I travel (even around my home-grown city of Hamilton, Ontario) I love to listen in on the tales and tidings of the people around me. Everybody has a story, a vision, something to say. Why not share these lively adventures? The stories we encounter on our travels make our days brighter, or sometimes cast a gloomy shadow. It is the stories that we encounter that put our own stories into perspective. And it is these stories I wish to tell. Anonymously, I wish to tell your story.
I am also a teacher! Or rather, an aspiring teacher. I was originally unsure about using my real name in my blog because as a public figure, I can and will be scrutinized for my work. As much as I respect this, I also know that I want to take ownership for my writing, and in using my own name I can do that.
I hope you find stories here that you can relate to, that you find interesting or that may inspire you in your own life. I encourage your insights, I wish to read your comments, I dream of a community that recognizes the importance of each of our stories no matter where we are in the world.
It’s a big big world with a million decisions plummeting towards you every day. Wouldn’t you like to know?
I can’t wait to begin. I hope you can join me!
