As a teacher, I enjoy having the opportunity to see my students outside the classroom pursuing their interests. I've seen students playing hockey, soccer, baseball, football, rugby, figure skating and acting. It's a small gesture that seems to mean a lot to the kids and their parents. It's also an opportunity for me to get to know my students better.
This evening I went to watch Dim play hockey. He scored a goal and came close to scoring three or four others. Here he is on a breakaway. It's not the best 'technical' photo I've taken but it captures his energy and enthusiasm. I plan on bringing my camera to future sporting events to work on my technique.
Life's a game, go play!
