This user was certified a Wiki Apprentice Level 1 by Mackiwg .

I live in beautiful Regina, Saskatchewan which you can check out at GoogleEarth. Je travaille en français for the French Education Branch of the Ministry. I help schools infuse technology into their daily practices and am revising curricula. I am also President of CNIE-RCIE[1]but know little about wikis simply as I haven't had the time to learn how to use them. I was principal of a French Immersion distance education school but we transferred this responsibility to the province's school divisions. It has been exciting working with them as this transition occurs.

I have a Master's in Education (C&I) and just completed an MBA certificate in Leadership. I loved those business classes and have been asked to conduct a research project on Leadership starting in January 2011.

Et c'est tout!
