During the first week of December, I had the extreme honor of attending the Curriculum Re-Design Symposium in Calgary. What an inspiring couple of days! Firstly, I was lucky enough to spend the ride back and forth to Calgary with some extremely talented and knowledgeable teaching staff from PHRD. A lot of great sharing happened along this ride. The actual symposium was a great time to share with PHRD student reps, teachers and Associate Superintendent Mark Theissen. Along with other representatives from across Alberta, the days were spent attending various workshops, with a common theme. It had a very positive vibe and an excitement for a change in our education system. A group of like-minded people took into account many different factors and came up with many great ideas that were all noted and this voice was taken into consideration. It left me with a feeling of great hope for the future of education in PHRD and Alberta. We are already doing great things in our division and after attending this symposium, I feel the future looks very bright indeed.
