My name is Gwen Floyd and I am Left Coast Mama. This blog was born after I decided I need to write for more than just the family back home in Nova Scotia and across Canada. I used to write about my children, life and whatever else I wanted to write about. This will still be at least somewhat true. I will probably still write about my family, though they have agency to censor posts. I will also write about education and what it is like going back to teaching, and what it is like to be a teacher in the time of a pandemic. There will also be times that I use this blog as a place for my reflections on specific professional development.
I am at heart an Eastcoaster and I miss the smell of the Atlantic, but the mountains almost make up for it. I joke that I am on the wrong coast, the left coast, the wet coast, but whatever else it is, it is home now and has been for over 20 years.
