The result is a fast and fun presentation which lasts just 5 minutes.
Ignite events are held in cities around the world.
Considering the featured image of this blog post, you can assume that I didn’t refuse this once in a lifetime opportunity! I quickly agreed to take the jump and present at the summit in front of +450 educators!
Don’t get me wrong; I have asked myself quite a few times… “What have I gotten myself into?” I am knee deep in practicum readings, plannings and marking… But, so far, the experience has been so exciting. I am absolutely thrilled and honoured to have been asked to present this year along with so many inspiring educators (A big shout out to Jen Giffen!). In my tweet below, I mention how it has been on my Bucket List to present at a conference.
However, I will admit, I didn’t think it would be happening this soon!!
Lastly, you might be wondering what my talk is going to be about? Well, it will go something like this: Learning to jump and build your wings on the way down is a lifestyle I have embraced throughout my journey through Teachers College, thanks to one of my mentors. As a Teacher Candidate, I have learnt that putting yourself out there, saying YES, taking risks and trying new things are so rewarding! Hoping I will inspire you to take a jump with me.
