The Rookie Teacher



A Rookie Introduction: Our Newest Contributor…Michelle Horst 0

Posted on December 03, 2011 by Michelle

Hello — I am Michelle Horst, a new occasional teacher in Halton District School Board. I have always thought of teaching as a journey and am looking forward to joining together with fellow “rookie teachers” to celebrate and support others in the art of teaching. It is my utmost desire to inspire my students to learn and take action, while helping them to find independence and joy in their world and beyond! I strongly believe that “education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one” [Malcolm Forbes], and I hope you will join us as we strive together to improve as teachers! You can find me on Twitter @Michelle_Horst and on Facebook sharing teaching resources at Our Classroom! If you would like to learn more about me, please feel free to check out my blog www.ourclassroom.ca!

Hello Rookies!  My name is Lauren and I am a primary-junior teacher who is just beginning occasional teaching in the GTA.  I enjoy facilitating classroom discussions about contemporary issues and current events.  I am interested in taking a couple of AQs in the new year, including Special Education, Librarianship, and Reading (I would love to hear about your AQ experiences).  When I’m not on the clock as a teacher, you can find me reading a book, hanging out with my dog (cute pooch to the right), or catching up with the latest episode of Damages.  I look forward to sharing and learning from all you rookies out there. Find me on Twitter @Hughes_Lauren or post a comment on the blog.
