In just over 3 weeks, I'll be one of 52 educators from North America heading to the Dominican Republic to help finish the building of a school. This came as quite a shock and pleasant surprise when representatives from Life Touch Photography came to my school at the end of November to let me know I was chosen.
On January 16, 2017 I'll be heading to Atlanta, then off to a town called Constanza in the Dominican Republic. I'm looking forward to experiencing life in a small rural countryside town and hoping that my being there will only enhance the lives of those I meet. As one of two Canadians lucky enough to be going, I know we will do our country proud and spread our word of acceptance to all those we meet.
I am hoping to use this blog to document my adventures over the 7-8 days I'm there. I'll be using Twitter as much as possible and hoping to send word back to my school and students about the people I meet and places I see on a regular basis.
I am the Principal at Mount Pleasant Elementary School in Vancouver, BC. I am passionate about inspiring others to be creative, curious and collaborative in their learning
