I am interested in finding ways to improve student learning. In the preceding video Sr. Ken Robinson offers a very interesting perspective concerning the important relationship between education and creativity. I believe this type of thinking can inspire limitless success in education. It is also clear to me that technology, an interest of mine, can play a vital role in cultivating student creativity.
My belief in God and the moral message of the Roman Catholic faith is the foundation for the way in which I teach. I am passionate about fostering within my students an understanding of empathy, kindness, humility, and charity. I achieve this by providing both extrinsic and introspective learning opportunities concerning faith. The following is a meditative video that assists me in looking within to find peace and happiness.
My life is consumed by sport. After completing high school I played division I golf at Idaho State University and later played 5 years for the University of Regina men’s basketball team. I currently hold a number of statistical records with the University of Regina and I have made 5 Saskatchewan provincial golf teams. Remaining motivated in basketball and golf sometimes requires a little push. Please view the video.
