About Me

I am a new teacher who has recently graduated with my two-year Bachelor of Education (After Degree) with a focus on senior years education at a small university in Manitoba, Canada. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in the spring of 2011 with a major in History and a double minor in both Geography and Geology.

I have recently accepted a position as a Grade 7-10 classroom teacher beginning in the fall of 2013 and will be teaching science, math, and art.

When I am not at school, my fiance and I are busily planning our upcoming wedding, working around the family farm or keeping up with our favourite football team: the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

"Patrick, I am not a teacher yet as I am still completing my education degree (I am just a student teacher right now) but I love finding new tech resources to use in the classroom. I came across your post because I actually just did a blog post on…"

Keys to Change Leadership

Leading change to help school practitioners embrace not only technology in teaching but in assessment, grading, and outcomes can be a challenge. Systemic, meaningful change from an environment of rote learning to the collaborative nature in a 1:1 environment can be met with resistance.

I thought I'd eventually be out of a job.

They know how to get to their game website and play till their eyeballs fall out, but when I ask them to find a file they created yesterday, they…See More
