Back to work 2020 edition

So I’m back to work tomorrow after a great Christmas break. This year I’m looking for to teaching some of the same classes and some new ones.

This is what’s on:

  • i3 – Our innovative year 10 programme asking the question “Can girls solve real world problems” 😉. We have the same 4 class teachers this year and I’m really excited by the changes we have planned
  • Mechatronics – my hands class with robots, raspberry pi’s, 3D printing etc. Really fun class.
  • Creating Apps Year 9 – this year I will introduce SwiftUI for app development and I am really excited to see how we go. I’m looking forward to sharing what we get up to.
  • Teach Drawing Year 9 – this one is new to me and I’m finally going to learn SketchUp. We are going to use the online education version which is free to Office365 schools now. I loved this subject when I went to high school so it should also be fun

Out of the classroom, I have plans to keep going with 15min PD’s and will look to start an Apple Teacher and Microsoft Innovative Educator programme for staff. I am also keen to see how we can get some everyone can can create stuff happening.

I’m also planning an esports club and I’m hoping the girls will get really involved.

Some other thing I’m looking forward to is Year 9 camp and Cross Country. Probably lots more too.

Good luck to all the other teachers returning in the next couple of weeks, hopefully you are as excited as I am.
