  • Classified Interview Part 3

    Without further ado, here is the conclusion of the Classified interview I did for DOPEfm radio. We were talking at the venue before the concert last week. Chase: “I’m still with Classified. We’re at the London Music Hall and we’re just in the back chilling right now, talking to Class. I want to talk about […]

  • Teaching Tip Tuesday – Procedures

    Teachers need to have procedures in place for every single routine in the classroom. These procedures need to be communicated to the students. But they do not need to be written down anywhere. A procedure, quite simply, is a series of steps that should be followed in order to do something effectively, efficiently, and safely […]

  • The Human Body is Fragile

    I know that I don’t often think about the limits of my body. I take it for granted that I am young, agile, and athletic. I run and jump and play on a regular basis. I still skateboard too. Some people might think I am just a big kid. In fact, I’ve heard comments to […]

  • Be Careful What You Wish For

    Today was track and field day at my school. The grade 7 and 8 students were running events. Most of these students had no idea how to do the event which they were running. I used to do track back in the day. So I took it upon myself to instruct the students on the […]

  • Tom Green is Hilarious

    Tom Green can be hit and miss when it comes to comedy sketches. But when he hits, he really hits. This skit is one of my favourites. I know that I sure can use a laugh in the middle of this week. I know it’s a short week due to the holiday, but I don’t […]

  • Teaching Tip Tuesday – Rules to Live By

    Children do not learn important social skills, morals, or values unless they are taught them. These basic life skills and attitudes need to be transmitted to children in some way. When I first became a teacher, I didn’t think that it was part of my job to teach these things. However, I quickly realized that […]

  • Classified isn’t Top Secret Anymore

    Last night I went to the Classified concert in London, Ontario. I had a chance to sit down with the rapper before the concert and interview him for the first ever, on location interview for DOPEfm. The turnout for the show was amazing. There had to be over 300 people there. The show was amazing […]

  • It’s All Doom and Gloom

    Dear Mr. Media, Whoever you are, can you please stop with all the doom and gloom reporting? I am sick and tired of turning on the television to discover the latest thing that threatens my life. First it was Killer Bees, then it was Mad Cow Disease. That was quickly followed by West Nile Virus, […]
