Spring Teaching Placement

Final stretch of Bachelor of Education training is full throttle, but the word of relief I got today was that my Spring teaching placement will be at MacSkimming Outdoor Education Centre from March 23-April 24. I will be in the woods. For a month. With little people. Doing ecological education. MacSkimming is part of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board = high proportion of city kids in the public school system. Their programs touch over 20,000 youth in the Ottawa area every year. I am overjoyed at this opportunity to learn from some great professional educators in the field of earth science and ecology.
