Back to SCHOOL

Posted by Lori Goldman on Thursday, August 25, 2011
Summer is almost over.  sigh*  but the weather is still lovely and warm.  It's hard to think about waking up early and getting dressed for school.  However, now is the time to begin.

Start going to bed a bit earlier each day.  Then, when school starts, it won't be so hard to get up early.

Find an exciting book!! And plan to read each day for 30 minutes to one hour.  Get back in the habit of reading.

Go shopping for the supplies you need to replace for a good school year: binders, paper, coloured pencils, reinforcements, erasers, pencils and pen.

Enjoy the sunny days and go for a run, a hike or a bike ride.  Breathe the fresh air and delight in the the outside world!

About Me

Lori in I got my Bachelor of Education degree in the USA but was born and raised in Canada. Working in Asia and with immigrant adults and children for 26 years has given me insights into the difficulties they face in a new country and school system. I like to help adults adjust to and explore the rich and diverse opportunities in Canada while also supporting them in their challenge of parenting in a new culture. I love to help children learn English, develop skills, and gain confidence to succeed in school and life.


“Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it” ― Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning A lack of planning on your part does not constitute and emergency on my part. "Most people don't plan to fail; they fail to plan." ~~John L. Beckley
