A Journey

Typewriter with Screen

Hi,
My name is Deborah Schell and this is my 9th MET course. This is my fifth year of teaching and I’m currently the Program Head of Business and Co-op at a Catholic high school in southwestern Ontario. Prior to embarking on my teaching career, I worked as a CA with a large Canadian life insurance company for 16 years. It was a big change, but I love teaching! On a personal note, I have a 17 year-old daughter who just started university and I love travelling.

I chose this picture because it reflects where I started my journey with technology and text in high school, the typewriter, and where I am now. I am constantly amazed at the speed with which technology changes. I’m not that old but today’s technology seems light years away from the Underwood typewriter I used in grade 9 typing. My goal is to learn more about the history of text and technology as I like to know how things have evolved as it helps me put current technological developments into perspective.

Looking forward to working with you.

Deborah
