  1. This is a beautiful website and a really thought-provoking project! I am actively collecting my thoughts and ideas so I can begin my own teaching coat really soon. I know this will be a really worthwhile professional growth activity, and I am looking forward to the fun of bringing the arts into it.

  2. Hello Tiffany,
    I thought it might be of interest to you to know that we are using your concept of the teaching coat in a faculty learning community here at Mount Royal University.Considering the idea of the coat has provided the basis for conversation around identity and change. We are in the midst of a creative experiment with our own coats which is proving to be an interesting and sometimes challenging process.
    Thanks for this great idea.
    Best Regards,

  3. I read the book the Courage to Teach and began working on my Teaching Coat. I am attaching a copy of the front and the back of it. I thought of who I am as a person and as a teacher. Emotionally I am a Mama Bear. I am also my students’ advocate. Through my carreer I have worked mostly with English Language Learners and English is my second language. I am also a gardener, who plants seeds of knowledge and allow God to water that seed that I have planted in faith. Why God and faith? Because I am a Christian woman who believes in the Word of God. Therefore, I know that teaching is a work of the heart and “where your treasure is there your heart will be also” Mathew 6:21. I was created from dust and I will return to it one day, meanwhile I have this wonderful priviledge and responsibility to give gold nuggets to others. What a blessing is to be a teacher!
