Welcome to my Blog! I am delighted that you have found your way to my site. It started out as a place to share educational ideas and inspirations, but as my career has grown and shifted, my posts are becoming more personal and reflective about all aspects of life. I hope you can relate to my perspective.
You will see many posts about e-Portfolios and reflective learning since this has been a focus of my work and studies. I have discovered the value of reflecting on key life experiences and have gained countless insights in my own life from this practice.
I have recently completed the fifth draft of a book that I hope to publish soon. The book contains 29 stories about crucial times in my life. At the end of each story, I have included reflective questions for readers to think about, or possibly write their story on that topic. I am hoping these reflection guides will deepen reader’s insights about their key life experiences and lead them to a greater understanding of themselves and the “why” questions they might have about their lives.
If you are interested in this book, please let me know.
