Here are a few of the fun and interesting projects I’ve initiated to improve the learning in my classroom and school.
In 2012 The City of Brantford announced it was rebranding itself. When I heard I offered to do to job for free with my grade 4/5 students. In February 2014 we finished out work on this project and Mayor Chris Friel came and saw my students’ work.

The Brantford Public Library wanted to develop a school program to encourage students to use some of their new digital tools. Together we developed the Makerspace program and my grade 4/5 class was the first class to try it out.

The Major Ballachey iPad Project
In the spring of 2012 I lead an effort to raise funds so that our school could buy new technology for the school. By collaborating with community partners we raised over $10,000 for new technology.
