Welcome to my e-portfolio! My name is Kali Day and I’m a third-year  student at the University of Regina studying Education, with a major in English and a minor in Social Studies. I have completed two classroom experiences, and I’ve been fortunate to have been able to teach English, Social Studies and Phys. Ed at an elementary level during these experiences.

My passion for English and Language Arts began before I can remember. Reading has always been my favourite pastime, and I always got excited when we got the chance to do creative writing in elementary school, and later took a creative writing class in high school which helped foster my love for not only literature, but language and expression through words. My love for Social Studies began a bit later, and developed during discussion of current events in high school Social Studies classes, where our teacher would ask the all important question: “What’s happening in the world today?”. These discussions helped me understand how much I cared about social justice, the state of the world and the importance of politics, history and geography.

I have always been excited about learning and I am passionate about teaching in a way that really reaches and connects with students. Stephen King once said that “We never know which lives we influence, or when, or why”. This is something  I truly believe, that every day we step into the classroom, we as teachers influence the students in everything that we do. Being a positive influence is our responsibility, and it is something I always have in the back of my mind when I am in the classroom.

I am so excited to continue my teaching journey as I go through my pre-internship and my internship. This e-portfolio contains lesson plans I have completed, blog posts from previous courses, and will be currently updated with blog posts from my ECS210 course, as well as lesson and unit plans from ESST300 and ELNG300. Thanks for taking a look a my e-portfolio, and for joining me on my teaching journey.
