Thank You for Making Science Fun

Thank You Miss Cozens for Making Science Fun #SayTkU

My daughter thanks one of her teachers for making science fun!

Science is all around us but not everyone loves science. I know that science was my least favorite subject in school. For my daughter it was too at first until she had a teacher that made science fun for her. We all have things we like and others we don’t but it’s truly a gift when someone whether it’s a teacher, friend, parent, or family member can spark interest in any subject. Science is sometimes one of those areas that aren’t always considered “fun” until someone shows you how it can be. That’s why we want to say thank you to those who foster curiosity in other when it comes to science.

Tips for Preparing Your Teen to Apply to University

Tips for Preparing Your Teen to Apply to University

While my daughter just started high school this year I think it’s important for all parents to have some ideas on how they can help their teen apply to university/college. As someone who worked in post-secondary for several years with recruitment and international education one thing I saw time and time again were both parents and their teens trying to get into a program where the application deadline was long past due.

University

It never ceased to amaze me how people didn’t have a clue about the deadlines to apply and thinking that if they were loud enough, pushy enough, begged etc.. that they could somehow bypass the rules and still be considered. Of course not everyone was like that but a surprising number would be. The best thing you could do in preparation for your teen applying to post-secondary is plan ahead and think it’s never too early to find out information.  [Read more…]
