"Mix and Mingle" #CTInquiry Launch Party

Thursday, December 3, 2015




Feeling like your "to do lists" are growing by the minute? 
Need some time to relax, unwind, and socialize?


Then come out to our next #CTInquiry session!

#CTInquiry stands for "Connected through inquiry: A curious community of learners."  It is a network that meets each school year either in person or online via Twitterchat to support and inspire everyone's unique inquiry journey.  For more information visit the #CTInquiry page on the blog.




To launch our new year of learning, 
I am hosting a special holiday party:

"Colour, collaborate, and spread good cheer!"

Curious about inquiry? 
Love to colour in a calm and creative environment?

Come "mix and mingle" with us!

The most valuable resources 

that all teachers have, is each other.

Without collaboration, our growth 

is limited to our own perspectives.
