Hello from Abbotsford BC

Hello all,

My name is Baljeet Gill and I currently teach at the Rick Hansen Secondary School of Science and Business in Abbotsford BC.  I am a business education teacher (marketing, entrepreneurship, economics, accounting) but have also taught both math and science classes.  I worked as an accountant, at various levels, for six years before realizing my passion of helping students realize their potential and entering the world of education – its a good story, maybe it will come up in the discussions.

I am currently enrolled in my 9th and 10th course of the MET program and have enjoyed the learning communities I have been a part of through my journey.  Our school is in the process of constructing a dedicated makerspace that will be open for student use this upcoming September so I am hoping to gain some insight into both the theoretical and practical ways to utilize this space.

I try to spend most of my summer riding my motorcycle and am hoping tomorrow’s forecast of sun for the next week is accurate – it has been a dreadful spring for riding thus far.

I look forward to getting to know you all as our term progresses.



  1. Great to hear your school is creating a Makerspace as we are venturing into that area as well in September. It will be interesting to see how these spaces develop across our province as each school has it’s own unique wants and needs. Look forward to hearing your thoughts this term on how you will set up your zone!

  2. Hi Baljeet,

    I am glad to see a familiar face in a course once again. Didn’t realize you were this close to being done, congratulations! I look forward to seeing your work this term.

  3. Thanks for the intro Baljeet, and congratulations on almost finishing! Looking forward to learning with you this term.
