The Mindful Grey: ECI 830 Summary of Learning
Wow, there just are no words. It’s cliche but that first class went by in a flash! Please enjoy my summary of learning. I keep trying to push myself outside of my comfort zones; from podcasts to videos…and now this. Slam poetry! Yes, you read that right, slam poetry…or my attempt at it.
None of this learning would have been possible without you all; so thank you for joining me on this snippet of my journey. Best wishes on your own path.
As well, I wanted to add closed captioning to my video, but I didn’t like how the words blocked my images. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, here’s a great website showing you how to view CC on any YouTube video.

Until we meet again…
About The Author
My name is Kim, but I go by many nicknames - Kippster, Kippy, Charlie (random, I know) - basically anything EXCEPT Kimmy (please). My pronouns are she/her and I am honoured to live on Treaty 6 land. In the last 13 years, I have taught every grade from 1-12, and for the past 2.5 years, I have been the K-7 Online Learning Support Teacher (OLST) for the Light of Christ School Division. RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME: 1. My family consists of a husband, son, daughter, a friendly polar bear/Great Pyrenees named Tank, and a small mountain lion/common house cat named Arfield Jigglesworth (AJ). 2. This is actually an info dump, but I am super passionate about: creative writing, reading (largely fiction and personal growth), learning, hiking, travelling, my family, mental health, and environmental/social justice. 3. I have travelled to over 60 countries now, and (when able) I can't wait to return to exploring this beautiful world with my family.
