Musings from a high school Teacher
I have really mixed feelings about this. I am so happy you get to head toward your dream, Jeff. I am, however, also very sad. I am losing an ally; you have been my partner in crime, when it comes to moving forward with pedagogy and technology use (and often misuse for some) in education. I have been unequivocally lucky to have met you right at the beginning of teaching at LV Rogers. From the first year when you handed over the computer science reigns, you were supportive, helpful, and innovative. Over the last 7 years, we have endeavoured to do many things at this school and accomplished a lot. I am proud of where we have been and look forward to the things we started here that have yet to come to fruition. It will not be soon that I forget. I am hesitantly taking over some of your tasks, as I feel I may not do them the justice. You have been the consummate professional. I wish you nothing but happiness and joy in your new job. I know we will remain friends. Good luck Jeff. May they know how great you are!
