Greetings from Northern Alberta

Hi Everyone,

I am excited about taking my 7th and 8th course this term, which are both going to be on the UBC Blogs, not Connect.  There is always something new going on with the MET program, and I think that is why I am enjoying it so much.

I work in Cold Lake, AB which isn’t very cold currently, but will quickly change temperatures and make us wish these warm days were more frequent.  This term I am teaching Grade 9 Math, Science, and Health.  Unlike the rest of Alberta my class sizes are very reasonable, so I thank my lucky stars for that.

In my spare time I am a volunteer firefighter with Cold Lake Fire-Rescue, and the president of the ATA Science Council.

This summer I was able to travel to Greenland and Baffin Island, and the photo below was taken in Illulissat, Greenland.  It was an incredible opportunity with a group called Students on Ice.
