Kung Hei Fat Choy! Today marks the start of the Chinese New Year, the year of the Horse! Hope the year brings you good health, happiness and prosperity! It’s wonderful how this time of year coincides with the start of the school year. Its a great time to set goals and think about what we would like to achieve, both professionally and personally. There are so many opportunities to be involved in coaching, mentoring and professional development. One of my goals for the year is to read more, blog more and participate more in my PLN. Even though I’m on leave, I still feel strongly connected to my role as a teacher and to my PLN. I’m really hoping there will be great opportunities to think, reflect and learn. I love the Opera House and I took this photograph last night. This iconic landmark hosts so many cultural and artistic events – great way to learn and to expand our hearts and minds.
