I have recently decided that it is time to move on from the UAE and seek a new adventure. While I have loved my time here, I can tell I am in a bit of a rut. I need a change and would really love to add another country to my list of homes. As I was working on my CV I began to wish that I had more than just my standard Bachelor of Education. However, with looking for a new job and a new start in a new school in a brand new country, it didn’t feel like the right time to start a master’s program.
A very good friend of mine has his COETAIL and has always been very proud of it and felt it greatly enhanced his teaching and resume. So I decided to jump into the world of COETAIL as well. My friend did say that it is a very rigorous program, so I hope that I won’t be in over my head, especially with all of the life changes ahead of me. (Hopefully!)
Additionally, this past year we have all been thrust ahead in our use of technology in education. I feel a lot more confident in using IT as part of my lessons, but I am sure that I could be doing a better job. I feel certain that even as time passes and life returns to normal, we will still have an increased use of technology in the classroom. We were well on that path before, now we have just sped up the process.
I look forward to working with my cohort and learning a lot.
