Hello there ETEC 522, my name is Leighton. This is one of two courses I am currently taking in my first semester at the UBC.
I am a grade 8 teacher in rural Saskatchewan where I teach a little bit of everything from ELA and Math to PE and a little bit of CAD. During a normal school year I’m usually away every weekend coaching either volleyball, basketball, badminton or track.
Outside of school and coaching I enjoy mostly hiking, skiing and other outdoor activities. My appreciation for the outdoors has only been improved with the addition of a covid-pup last spring.
I look forward to learning more about how education tech and software is conceived, developed and released into the marketplace.
