My name is Tara Avenia, and this is my third semester in the MET program. ETEC 540 will be my sixth course and like many of you I am amazed at just how fast this journey has been. I know we aren’t supposed to judge a book by the cover, but I was sold as soon as I read: “The Changing Space of Reading and Writing.”
I think that communication is the most fundamental skill that an individual can possess, regardless of discipline, age, gender, or culture. I also think that communication starts with literacy. I suppose we shall see.
I have worked in television and film production, taught communications technology in Malaysia, and worked as a teacher on-call in Chilliwack. I have also had the most fortunate opportunity to travel all over South East Asia.
I am currently in the process of moving to Vancouver (my husband got a job!) and we are very busy searching for an apartment. Finding a great apartment for two 30 somethings in Vancouver is a little like finding a needle in a haystack 😉 Wish us luck – haha. I love to hike, bicycle, scuba dive, and I am really excited to join the Vancouver Ultimate Frisbee Club. Life is busy, but on the up side it is also very interesting.
I am looking forward to yet another memorable semester.
