Back to school!

Today marks my 15th orientation with BScN nursing students at St. Clair College.


No matter how many years I attend Fall orientation, it feels like the first time.

No matter how many times I work with students, it never gets old.

Their first class is my first class.

Their struggle is my struggle.

Their victory is my victory.

Students are my reason why.


And so today marks the beginning of something great.

Another fresh start.

Another set of dreams.

Another opportunity to change (student) lives for the better.

    You are an amazing teacher, I love your outlook and enthusiasm. Hearing that from a student perspective is warming and inspiring. Keep up the great success with your new class!

      1. Thank you very much! I’m super excited about all of the adventures. My students have been wonderful so far. They are so full of life! You have a wonderful weekend as well, Andrea!

  2. I think you’re incredible as a teacher! The many teachers I’ve seen were usually seemingly bored of first day classes, and it’s wonderful how you’re as excited for your first day as your students are. Also, nice pictures. β€οΈπŸ–Ό
