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.
