Awards

Prime Minister's Award

Prime Minister's Award for Teaching Excelence in Science and Mathematics (1995).

In addition, I worked on a project in Mexico for 3 years, with the Open School Agency to train teachers on the use of using technology in the classroom.

Legacy

Developed online courses in 2001 and made those available only to the students that I taught.

After retireing, I decided to open all my resources to everyone and have been slowly updating them to html5 comptability. To date I have Physics 12, Physics 11, Science 10 online in html5 versions. They consist of course content and assessment (practice, quiz, tests) all with answers (most detailed). Currently working on Sc 8 & 9 along with Earth Science 11, all a work in progress. To anyone who uses them, enjoy.
