About Me

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
-Benjamin Franklin 

 

My name is Kendra Wack. I come from a small town in Saskatchewan called Rosetown. I graduated high school from Rosetown in 2012. The University of Regina of Regina was home for a year as I was completing my first year of Post Secondary Schooling, in the program of Fine Arts Education. As much as I loved Regina I decided to take a transfer to the University of Saskatchewan to follow another dream, Home Economics. I am currently in my Final Year of study in my Education Degree at the University, and am extremely passionate about my studies. By April 2016 I plan on completing a Bachelor of Education Degree with a Home Economics major, a Social Sciences Minor. Some of my hobbies include fitness, DIY, graphic design, and running my two home based businesses, “Kendra Wack Photography” and “Grow Crochet”, I enjoy graphic design, and painting as an outlet for my creativity. 

I am passionate about teaching students, student involvement, and a positive classroom environment centred around student independence. One of the ways I wish to achieve this is through constant integration of technology within my classroom, project based learning and incorporation of 21C learning goals with digital citizenship at the focus of my classroom, this blog is where I keep the majority of my professional development portfolio, classroom and university experience, along with some personal development documents, take a minute and look around.
