Bonjour les amis!

Practicum News
On Tuesday I found out that my first practicum will be with a K/1 Immersion class!
#kinderchat #1stchat and #frimmchat will be a few of the communities that I look to for support.

On Tuesday evening I took part in the #BCStuTeach chat on bullying, hosted by the founder of the #IAmAntiBully campaign.
I was very much looking forward to attending the #yyjignite event in person. Unfortunately I was not feeling healthy enough to attend. (In the end, I still participated a little bit via Twitter, and ended up in the Storify about the event.)

My FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) did not win, though. My feelings around missing this event prompted me to do a bit of reading about burnout, including this article with 7 Strategies to Prevent Burnout.
On Thursday morning, I used BlueJeans in the #tielab to connect the #PDPPPosseRC with @h_james for a video conference. Here's my blog post about that meeting. Despite fumbling around with the remote, I got it working, and I'm already looking forward to my next video chat!
