Happy New School Year 2017-18!!!

I would like to take this time to welcome you back to a new school year and to welcome you to our course website.

This year, I am extremely excited to teach Business 8, Programming 10-12, and Planning 10 and to learn the names of all the new faces at Kitsilano Secondary! 😮 This is my first year at this school but I have over 10 years of classroom teaching experience from John Oliver and Windermere Secondary School, where I have taught business education, computer science, digital media and mathematics. I look forward to get to know all of you better.

In addition, if you are interested in starting a school club or team, come see me. I am a strong believer of building strong student leadership through community involvements and initiatives. In the mean time, please make sure to bookmark and check this website regularly because its contents get updated regularly. 🙂
