    Although I would LOVE to have ipads, unfortunately I am stuck with super slow and faulty netbooks (laptops) and a SMART board. However, I LOVE your lessons and have been using them regularly as a foundation for my class(minus the odd tweak to suit my teaching style and students).
    Thank you for sharing all of your hard work.

      Thanks for the feedback!

      Glad to know that the resources are being used and appreciate the kind words. I haven’t had a grade 11 workplace class in a few years, so there are updates definitely needed. Hopefully Ill teach another section soon to spend some time improving them.

      Have a great semester and reach out anytime!
