Sketchnote: The "Balanced Life" of a Teacher Candidate from Sarah Anne Lalonde @SarahAnneLaLonde


Sarah Anne LaLonde happened upon World Sketchnote Day at the last minute. She wanted to contribute but left her pens elsewhere. So she pulled out her iPad and Musemee Notier Prime stylus and sat down for a little self-reflection. The result was a sketchnote about what life is like as a Teacher Candidate.

Sarah writes,

I love that this Sketchnote Selfie has connected with so many other preservice teachers and educators from Canada and the USA. 

Sketchnoting has helped me as a future teacher, whether it was taking notes, studying for exams or doing some self-reflecting. I've always had an eye for Sketchnoting. I truly believe it promotes a growth mindset, communication and collaboration. It is something I envision adopting this in my classroom.

I look forward to connecting with more Sketchnoters to help inspire me and mentor me.

Sarah, your sketchnote has inspired a lot of people and sparked a lot of conversation. Well done! We look forward to seeing the impact of sketchnotes in your classroom.

You can find Sarah on Twitter @SarahAnneLaLonde on the web at, or on her podcast “Que sera Sarah?

Thank you for sharing!
