Hello all! My name is Alicia and I am a middle school teacher from Chilliwack, which is about 90 minutes outside of Vancouver. I am in my fourth year of teaching and teach Math, Science and PE. I am currently taking my fourth and fifth MET courses. Like many of you I’m sure, I am still in the adjusting phase, having gone from the leisurely days of summer to the hectic pace of a new school year.
I chose this photo because it shows the rapid evolution of communication and the media. We have come such a long ways just in the past 20 years and the pace of change seems to be continuously accelerating. In some respects, I long for the days of old when things seemed simpler. Although I am constantly using my Kindle and iPad, there is still nothing like the feeling of reading a good old-fashioned paperback novel. I am very interested in learning more about the pros and cons of new text technologies and how they can best be used in the classroom.
I look forward to working with everyone and wish you all a happy new school year,
