Glamorgan PS, Calgary

January 14, 2015

Last year, the Principal at Glamorgan saw me at a Youth Conference, and asked me that day to come to her school.  Today I spoke to the students, and this evening to their parents.  We had six students return with their parents this evening.

Thank You for a great day!

Valley Creek, Calgary

January 13, 2015

Valley Creek originally had me visit just over a year ago.  My return today in speaking with Grade 4/5/6 was great.  My optics were on the Grade 7/8/9s – and for 60min they were in-tune, and with more tech-targeted questions versus last year.  Modifying my presentation to reflect their current trends worked out perfectly.

Thanks to the parent community for a great evening.

Christ The King, Calgary

January 12, 2015

I return for 11days to  Calgary – with my first stop at Christ The King in the South, today.

My Thanks to the Principal of Christ The King who invited me back to speak with his community. My first visit was two years ago.  An amazing reception by students who remembered my message and told me what they had changed online after first seeing me.

Prince of Peace / St Thomas Aquinas

January 8, 2015

In the YCDSB I visited Prince of Peace, St Thomas Aquinas and St Berrnadette.

An incredible day of three presentations to three different schools.  A first for me.

The Principal at STA has now asked me four times to visit his schools.  I am very Thankful for his support of my message to students and parents.


St Andrews Jr High School, TDSB

January 7, 2015

Today I returned for two presentations to students, and tonight with their parents.

St Andrews had me speak last year and invited me back for an update, and for those who missed it.

The Grade 9 session lasted 20min longer due to some excellent interaction.

I appreciate the opportunity have presented again

Julliard PS, YCDSB

January 6, 2015

A long time in the making, but today I was finally able to present at Julliard PS in Vaughan.

Two large student sessions – and great interaction in the Grade 7/8 session.

I look forward to my June Q&A with your Grade 8s!


Chemong PS

January 5, 2015

My first day back has me visiting Chemong PS, in Bridgenorth Ontario!

Even with Team Canada in the Finals today, we had a good parent audience out this evening in freezing temps.

Excellent group of students today! Thank You

Happy New Year

Happy New Year.  I look forward to returning to schools and speaking with students, educators, administrators and parents.  After some rest and quality family time, I am ready to go!
