My main focus outside of my career is being with my family. I enjoy helping my son and daughter who are at university. My son was a hockey player and now studying to be a medical doctor while my daughter is learning to be a Pharmacist.
I did not know what I wanted to do in high school but believed that education was very important. I have since realized that learning must be a life long activity. I have continued to learn my entire life and will continue to do so even though I have a Doctorate in Education.
Understand that learning has to be a life-long activity.
I manage an organization with a budget of 64 million dollars that has over 800 employees, 41 schools spread over an area of 32,000 square kilometers. Technology is a huge factor in providing supports to teachers and students as we move towards having students much more involved in managing their own learning. Understanding how to implement technology into your learning plans is a key ingredient!
