Dan Reid

I am taking part in this course from Vernon, BC. I completed my BA in History and Geography and education training at the University of Victoria. I moved to Vernon for my teaching practicum and have lived here ever since. I'm currently teaching Social Studies and English at Kalamalka Secondary School, an 8-12 school with about 700 students. Right now I am one year in to my graduate studies at UBC Okanagan. I found out about this course through Alec, who I met in a 1 credit summer institute/paid vacation course he put on at UBC O this summer. I am happy to take part in this course in spite of my ridiculously busy life and I want to thank Alec for helping me make good use of 4 of the elective credits I need to complete my masters.
