There are moments that mark our careers, our lives and our memories. Yesterday I had a very special moment, surrounded by friends, colleagues and mentors. In the company of about 20 or so other winners of awards presented by the Werklund School of Education, I was honoured and humbled to receive the 2014-2015 Teaching Excellence Award.
I know there were some pretty special people working behind the scenes who made this happen and some pretty phenomenal former students wrote letters of support to the selection committee.
Moments like these don’t happen very often. We enjoy them, savouring the opportunity to share with those around us who make the work worthwhile and bring joy to our professional practice.
That happened yesterday. Today it is back to work, connecting with students at the beginning of another busy fall semester. I’m thrilled to be teaching two groups of Master’s of Education students this semester. They really do keep me inspired on a daily basis.
