I don’t know what you heard about me…

Hello ECI 834’ers and welcome to my blog!

First, thanks for coming to check out my blog – I am excited to get back on here after taking 1 semester off to study curriculum development relating to Indigenous education.  Below is the 5 W’s of me, hopefully it will give you enough of an insight into what I am and what I want to get out of this course. 🙂

W ho:  Danielle Hackel (Dani).

W hat: I am a 31 year old wife and animal Mum!  I am a grade 2/3 teacher, a small business owner and a life long learner.

W hen:  I have been teaching for 9 years and am on my 5th Master’s class towards my curriculum and instruction program.

W here:  I was born in Saskatoon and moved to Regina when I was 6.  I currently live and work about 5 minutes from where I grew up, went to elementary school and then to high school.  Geographically I have gone no where. 😛  I suppose the good ol’ saying, “There’s no place like home” has never rang truer.the wizard of oz home GIF  Thanks Giphy!

W hy: So, Alec asked us to set 3 learning goals for this blog and I think that’s the ultimate why.  1.  I want to be able to continue to build and develop my PLN through online course development and research.  I don’t think a teacher would last in this profession without building support systems.  2. To learn the tools I need to actually develop a curriculum as one day I am hoping to move out of the classroom and into some kind of other position with my division.  I think the skills that blended learning allows,  gives us a giant step in the right direction.  Technology and online learning is the way of the future and these skills will keep us at the forefront.  3.  I would like to stay ahead of the impending issues that will arise while using online platforms.  I am interested in exploring issues in technology and online learning because I want to always have an educated answer to problems and also be able to see both sides of the coin.  I know there are issues and I know that I won’t ever grow fully if I don’t learn to come up with solutions for the tough problems.
