Future teachers, the penguin dance, and life skills

Calgary French & International School a minute with Mme. Amy MurrayI spent this morning speaking to a group of Education students at the University of Calgary, about the field of early childhood education, and the importance of play in young children’s classrooms. Starting my day with a group of such keen, motivated, and genuinely interested future teachers was a wonderful reminder of how lucky I am to do work I love so much.

Calgary French & International School celebrates Spirit DayWednesday was “Animal Day” for all elementary students, and they came to school dressed accordingly! It was such a treat to see the creativity that went into the children’s outfits, and they were so proud to explain their facepaint, costumes, masks, and accessories.
