Hi, my name is Brooklyn Nordgulen. Welcome to my blog! I would like to acknowledge that I am on Treaty 4 Land. This is where you can come to get to know me and hopefully I can get to know you as well. If you are passionate about education and the future leaders of the world, then we certainly have something in common. Feel free to check out some of my posts where I share my thoughts and ideas about education, what I’m learning, and my experiences learning to be a teacher.
I have been a small-town girl my whole life, spending majority of my life in Southey, SK. I attended Robert Southey School kindergarten through grade twelve. Sports and life-guarding are two of my biggest passions — my spare time you can usually find me playing any sport or of course in the swimming pool teaching children how to swim. I also love spending time with my family and catching up with all my long–distance friends. It is always my mission to try new things, whether that be exploring things places I’ve never been, trying a new kind of food, or simply making connections with people I’ve never met.
Growing up I thought I would enjoy a career in something related to health and helping people. For a long time, I was very set on being an addiction counselor, until I realized I was much more passionate about working with kids. In the summer of 2014 I worked at an outdoor pool teaching swimming lessons to children. I taught these kids how to swim, sang songs, and played games all summer. This made me realize how much I loved teaching. After that I continued to put that interest to the test by teaching and leading children’s activities in my school and coach. It was obvious to me that I had a gift for teaching and a love for working with kids. Now I am pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.
