Welcome to my learning website for 2014 to 2016.
I retired from 37 years of teaching in June of 2014 in order to devote myself to learning in a Numeracy Masters of Education degree at S.F.U. I will use this website to blog about my learning through this process and through my online activities with teaching and learning. It will take me a little time to rework the website
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
