Yesterday I started at my new position in Barnwell. There’s not a lot to say, other than things have been working out pretty well and I’m looking forward to the rest of the year. Grade five has a lot of interesting things to relearn before I teach it to my new students. For example, I […]
Things are finally coming together in my teaching career. Last June I was hired to teach high school New Media at W.R. Myers in Taber, Alberta! This was my goal when I went back to school and I just have to say, now that I’ve started, it feels great when a plan comes together. The […]
Last Monday I interviewed for a full-time teaching position at a Hutterite Colony. Yesterday, I found out that I got the job! I’m extremely looking forward to it.
So I drove all the way up to Vulcan, Alberta this afternoon. I stopped by most of the Elementary and High schools along the way. I might even have a job lined up (subbing) for next week.

The CBC is streaming the show in SWF format, however, they’ve made it nearly impossible (as far […]
Here is a screen shot of the Lethbridge NDP website that I recently designed. I incorporated design elements from both the Federal and Provincial NDP in order to convey the message that the Lethbridge office exists for both sides of the party. Although I originally used the lime green of the Federal party, ultimately the […]
I just finished putting together a site for a small construction company in Drayton Valley, Alberta, Karleb Homes Ltd. Using cascading style sheets (CSS) I was able to keep the “content” of the site separate from the design. I also used Douglas Bowman’s sliding door technique for the navigation tabs which allows greater accessibility for […]
