    My Story

    Hi! I am the English and Canadian & World Studies Department Head at a high school in Strathroy, Ontario, Canada. I am interested in lots of things, including writing, engaging novels, and effective pedagogies. I am particularly interested in how new(ish) texts, like video games, can be used to foster learning.

    My Interests
    I am very interested in good books and great video games.

    Favorite Quote
    We no longer think of chairs as technology; we just think of them as chairs. But there was a time when we hadn't worked out how many legs chairs should have, how tall they should be, and they would often "crash" when we tried to use them.

    Favorite Book
    The End of Education/Macbeth/Ready Player One
