Teaching While Depressed
The Rising Action might be my favourite teacher blog. Vulnerability, honesty, and beauty beam through the screen as you read it. This week’s post on “Teaching While Depressed” was so helpful to read, as we’ve all known colleagues who have experienced this struggle.

Jordan Peterson is a clinical psychologist, former university professor, and now social media entrepreneur and intellectual. I am intrigued by the social media storm which has surrounded him for the past year or two. This isn’t because I wish to engage in a debate about his ideas.
