A Special Note as We Close 2023

Dear cherished community,

As the year winds to a gentle close, I find myself enveloped in the warmth of reflection, gratitude, and anticipation for the journey ahead. This is a special note to all of you who have been the lifeblood of the Blue Brain Teacher for a whole decade. I stand in amazement at the passage of time, having started this blog back in 2013 with a heart full of passion and a mind eager to connect and share.

🎉 Celebrating a 10-Year Milestone 🎉

Ten years of growth, learning, and connection. I began this blog to share my resources, aiming to touch the lives of fellow educators and thereby the lives of countless students. The reality of a decade-long journey in this space overwhelms me with gratitude. Your unwavering support has been my compass, guiding every post, every resource, every shared story. Thank you, from the depths of my heart.

🌱 Embracing Change 🌱

The winds of change have whispered through the corridors of education and the hallways of my own life. No longer do I teach our smallest learners; my path has led me to the lecture halls of a college. While my heart still dances in the world of elementary education, the focus of the Blue Brain Teacher has begun its gentle shift.

🌟 Focusing on Creativity and Critical Thinking 🌟

In 2024 and beyond, you will witness a blossoming – a focus honed on the integration of creativity and critical thinking into every educational level. While the essence of this blog will always cradle education, the movement into creativity education will become more pronounced. The commitment to support you remains steadfast, with an enhanced emphasis on fostering 21st-century skills within your students.

🤖 Navigating the Future 🤖

In the dawning era of artificial intelligence, we stand on the cusp of a monumental shift in education and life as we know it. The landscape continuously evolves, and while the exact contours of future education remain veiled, the importance of human development – collaboration, critical thinking, and world navigation – have never been more crucial.

🌟 Join Me in This Evolution 🌟

In this tender transition, I extend a hand of invitation to each one of you. Journey with me as The Blue Brain Teacher metamorphoses, reflecting the transformative times in the world and in education. Let us embark on this exploration together, navigating the unknown with courage, curiosity, and unwavering support.

I invite to join my online community – it is just in its infancy, but if you are an educator that is interested in preparing your students for the world of tomorrow please join.
