5 random facts about myself
Left handed
Worst teacher in existence at noticing uniform infringements
I often mix up numbers/letters (the words and their meaning)
I can’t draw
I can’t sing and will mime singing the school song to avoid embarrassment

4 things from my bucket list
Visit Japan
Do Tongariro crossing
Be in charge of something at school - subject, club, team, etc
Run 10k without slowing to a walk

3 things I hope for this year as an educator
Kamar won’t crash or glitch
My students to get into their class choices for 2015 - meet all Science pre-requisites
All teachers I’m helping to complete their e-portfolios by december

2 things that have made me laugh or cry as an educator
Student stories and their completely off the wall thoughts make me laugh daily
The last thing that made me cry was a year 12 student who worked so hard and studied so much, she attended tutorials and did every extra to aim for Excellence on assessment. In the assessment she freaked out and mixed up questions and got Not Achieved, we were both very upset (happy tears followed when she got Excellence in the resit)

1 thing I wish more people knew about me
My varied range of hobbies (reading, archery, anime, sci-fi/fantasy, exercise, video and board gaming)

Day 9
One of my biggest accomplishments in teaching

Mine would have to be the progress I’ve made in developing, leading and teaching others to use e-learning in a variety of ways in the classroom, using BYOD in my classes and developing a range of tools and skills. Also becoming the go to department expert in e-portfolios and using new tools
