Hello world!

Welcome to my resurrected blog!  I’ve had my own domain since early 2003, and it has gone through many iterations and versions.  My last wordpress got hacked, so lets hope this one keeps the spammers out.

I am a Teacher-Librarian at a  High School near Sidney BC called Parkland Secondary  It is a beautiful part of the world, and I love living there with my wife.  We like to garden, cycle, travel and explore our local natural environment that surrounds this amazing penninsula.

I also teach part time online for the UBC Teacher-Librarian diploma program, a specialization for Educators to become Teacher-Librarians in our public schools.  I teach LIBE 477 – New Media and New Technology in the School Library, as well as LIBE 467 – Information Services and Resources.

My professional interests are around School Libraries and transitions to Library Learning Commons models, as well as Inquiry Based Learning and International Baccalaureate learning as we just became an IB World School offering the IB Diploma Program for Sept 2018.

I have lived most of my life around the Salish Sea and appreciate all the beauty, splendor and wealth that it offers us. I am especially grateful for the many first nations and their contributions to our special part of the world.
