This is my first year as EE Coordinator and I am absolutely loving it. I feel like I’ve really gotten to know the grade 11 students on a different level and I appreciate the open and honest conversations I’ve been having with them. The challenge for me has been in creating a process where the students don’t see the EE as something daunting but rather as something fascinating. From what I’ve been hearing, many of the students have chosen topics that they are passionate about and want to study at university. This is a great opportunity for them to hone their research skills and create a piece of academic writing they can be proud of. The most difficult part has been allocating the students. This was a time-consuming process, but one that I’ve learned from. I now know what I need to do next year in order to ensure that this part of the EE process is more efficient.
