A lot is shifting in my life. Major shifts. New family members and career moves. I’ll soon be leaving my longterm career in English language teacher education to start my own coaching/consulting business.
If you’re interested in my journey or would like to work with me, please subscribe to this blog. Topics I write about and help people work through include: self-expression via self-acceptance; mind and body alignment; and mindset tuning. Let me know what you’re most interested in learning about.
Throwing Back Tokens is play on the term reflective teaching. According to the dictionary definition, the word teach is historically related to the word token. As for reflection, a quick thesaurus search shows the synonym throwing back. This is how Throwing Back Tokens was born.
When I started this blog in 2009, this was the main topic I was writing about: my life as a teacher. As the years pass, I feel more drawn to write about the magic and mysteries of life. This may be found at the front of the class; within my favourite podcast; on the streets of South Korea; among the rainforests of Costa Rica; or in the hammock in my backyard. I’m looking forward to throwing back a different kind of token.
Some of these “tokens”, past and present, may include:
- Compassion and Self-compassion
- Nonviolent Communication
- Reflective Practice
- Life in Korea
- Teacher training
- English language teaching
Thank you for joining me on this new journey.
