First and most important of all, I am a teacher. I have been teaching for eighteen years and I learn something every day.
I teach full time and enjoy being involved with research to improve what we do in our classrooms. I am involved with efforts to redefine literacy and what it means to be literate in our twenty-first century, technologically advanced society.
My classroom has been featured in several articles in Middle School Journal, Technology and Learning, and in the recent books New Literacies in Action, The Socially Networked Classroom and Personal Learning Networks. I have also been featured on CBC, CNET, and MSN.
I have been honoured to win one of Canada’s highest teaching awards; the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching. I have also been named an Outstanding Middle Years Educator in my province, as well as winning several other awards for the innovative integration of technology into everyday classroom life.
I live in a small rural community and think geography is irrelevent on our hyperconnected globe. This leads to the tagline of my blog: “Even From Here.”
