My name is Maureen! I live in Barrie, Ontario and have been teaching elementary grade students for close to 15 years. At this point in my career I would have thought that I am ready to coast my way to retirement. However, 5 years ago I began to think about technology and its potential to revolutionize education. One idea lead to another, and ended up with me applying to the MET program. That was then and now I am nearing the end of my journey with UBC. This is my second last course!!!!!
I have enjoyed all of my courses to date, but I am super curious about this one. My original degree was a bachelor of science in nursing, so I am interested in exploring any new learning that is related to science.
The city of Barrie is a great place to visit if you are thinking of traveling for the summer. It’s located in Central Ontario on the shore of Kempenfelt Bay and only an hour away from Toronto.
I look forward to getting to know everyone over the next little while:)
