Getting to know people in a new city isn't easy. Especially if you're used to being in contact with hundreds of humans each day in a school and you find yourself in a new city, with your husband and cats as the only familiar faces. Especially if you've spent the first six months that you've been here with your head in a computer, writing a book.
Now that I can pull my head up, I want to get involved in education here in Toronto. There are so many incredible things already going on, it's overwhelming.
Getting to meet some inspiring Toronto educators at #edcamptoronto, I got a taste for the passion and innovation in the people in education here. I'd love to be part of a community of educators.
Please consider joining me to celebrate the release of my book "Creating Classroom Magic" and talk about ways that we can create more magic, together, here on the education scene in Toronto.
The launch is an informal, social event. You don't even have to buy a copy of the book! I'd just love to see you there.
The subtitle to "Creating Classroom Magic" is "Using Lessons from the Life of Walt Disney to Create an Experimental Prototype Classroom of Tomorrow." The party is on what would have been Walt Disney's 114th birthday. So, obviously, the launch is birthday party themed. There will be lots of surprises in store for everyone.
I hope to see you there!
