Dease Lake School Photo Fund-raiser

Dease Lake School Portrait Day

On my way to a conference I stopped in at Dease Lake School to do student and family portraits, This was a great chance to do a fund-raiser for our little school in Lower Post and we grossed $2500.00 in the one day shoot. I met a lot of great students, staff and families. Thank you for your support.

This lovely family allowed me to use their image in our celebration of our success.

Autumn Colours-Red

Funny how one progresses in fits and starts... as I went through a dvd  of my camera that I had been meaning to watch for over a year.  I now know how to make the images internally s,m,l or Raw... this one is in small-normal and way faster to upload on my rural bandwidth.  I now know how to save my portraits as Raw+ fine jpg.  I wondered about shutter speed on water shots and now know how to adjust it. Last but not least I learned how to set the internal picture quality. This one is vivid. It is amazing what one can learn when taking the time to learn. I may be ready for a photography class but every day is a lesson for me as I explore my world and my passions.

Where Am I Going?

Rearview Sunrise...
Rear-view Mirror Sunrise
This week is back to school for teachers and students. I have planned the year with a lot of what I hope are engaging activities that will stimulate my student's growth. Whenever I make a plan I look at where I have been and where I want to go. I make a map and a plan. it is the same with my school... I need to reflect where I have been and where we need to go. I need a plan... a yearly plan... a unit plan.. a lesson plan... a weekly plan... a day plan... get the idea?  The outline of what will happen is driven by where I have been with the students. The plan will allow me to ask those essential questions that will drive the inquiry based experiential learning I believe so much in.  The plan map lays out the travel itinerary of places I want to see and things I want to do along the way. It doesn't limit me to only those places as the students may take me down another road.  Where ever we go a in our journey we will take time and enjoy the beauty along the way and celebrate each day of learning as we look ahead of what is still to come.
