As this blog has continued to grow alongside my personal and professional wanderings, I have been wanting for some time to aggregate these extra-curricular projects and share them on this site. After all, while this site has grown primarily around my life and work as an educator – in the Gifted Classroom the blog’s title takes its name from – the networked connections it has facilitated have rekindled and aligned a deeper passion for the creative arts.
Originally, I graduated university with an honours diploma in Creative Writing & English Literature, and a few literary projects undertaken in the years after university have surfaced here and there during the early days of this blog. But as I get more into the presentation game – I’ve delivered a few this year – and continue to branch out artistically – music! – I wanted there to be a repository for work that has reached a more finalized form than a blog post.
