  1. How fun!!!! 🙂

    Okay my favourite posts…

    From Meaghan I have loved “It’s not always rainbows and sunshine” because I find honesty so refreshing and it was such a great reminder we won’t always love what we’re doing all the time and that’s OK! And her post on “I wouldn’t trade it” as I loved reading how she got to where she is now! So dedicated and wonderful 🙂

    From Karley I have loved “Teachers time out – Cambodia” because it gave me so many ideas as to how to support communities I believe in and have been apart of but that I don’t live in at the moment. And her latest one “21 for the sisterhood” what a neat idea! I’m totally snagging that for the TC10km, how motivating!

    Thanks so much for sharing parts of your lives, I truly enjoy this blog!

  2. you are two ladies that I admire so very much. I feel privileged to have you in my life. My favourite post on your blog is meaghans post about anxiety. The courage to write and share something so intimate I found truly inspiring.
    Love you both!
    Tea soon? Or wine?!

  3. Ok, it’s really difficult to pick a favourite. I’d have to say that one of your first posts makes the cut – Feel Good Friday. This was just before I came back to Canada to teach and it helped reignite my teaching inspiration. When I had my first middle school contract, I had asked Meaghan for some advisory ideas and she reminded me of that post. I went ahead and started doing that with my students. 🙂

    At the end of the day, I’ve loved every single one of your posts and I am lucky to have such passionate teacher friends that remind me on a regular basis that this really is the best profession in the world!

  4. I enjoy all of your posts! As an “older” teacher and mother of adult sons I enjoy hearing about your lives and teaching. Your candour is appreciated. I enjoyed participating in the book club as I haven’t had time for a “regular” off line book club yet. I am new to twitter and blogging and am finding it all fun! Thanks, Karen

  5. Your blog has really been a source of inspiration for me as a recent graduate!

    My favourite post was this one:
    This lesson looked amazing, and really demonstrated what teaching should be all about – helping students become confident and kind. What an amazing way to boost self esteem! I’m definitely going to do a similar lesson when I have my own class. I’d love it if you could talk more about what Feel Good Friday looked like in your class as well!

    I also really enjoyed the food prep posts (mornings are so rushed!) and the post about Cambodia, because it really filled me with inspiration to make a difference. Thank you for that!

  6. Your blog is amazing! It is difficult to pick a single favourite post. Selfishly, I absolutely have to pick Kaitlyn’s guest post. It is truly amazing that you would share this platform with a middle school novice blogger. Your blog is uplifting for the teaching community – you share ideas and inspiration, and also the realities of this profession. Sharing a child’s blog post elevates their voice and provides inspiration to the people that are the most important in our work – our students.

    Overall, I appreciate your reflective tone. Even when times are tough, you retain optimism, hope and a sense of humour! You encourage and prioritize balance in our busy lives. Meaghan, I have appreciated getting to know you better through this forum. I appreciate your honesty, your open nature, and your support as I find my own voice online.

    Keep up the great work!
