I am a retired shop teacher who likes to dabble with computers and create web sites. I have worked various jobs such as carpentry, drafting, painting, and writing. I
was born in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. Along the way I managed to qualify
for a Master's degree in Educational Administration. In the educational
field, I taught school mainly in the grade 7 to grade 12 levels and, at
one time or another, I was a department head, a vice-principal, a principal, and a co-ordinator of technology. Formal education and a so-called professional
career, however, do not replace the school of everyday hard knocks when
it comes to survival in today's world.
I believe computer technology and the internet have provided the world
with a solution to bringing nations closer together. My hope is they will
develop a sense of kinship through the sharing of ideas and information. In the long run, truth must and will prevail. If not, we will be living
in a "big brother" community where the political game is played to the disadvantage of the common man and woman.
Please browse around the hero pages and, hopefully, you will find some information on heroes
you can use for school essays, biographies, or other such projects. You might even find someone who can be your own role model.
