Superintendent's message

I am so happy to be part of the Maplewood Community.  As the school’s new superintendent, I have already come to understand some of the great aspects of the school.  Each day, I have the opportunity to see staff do great work to support learning in the most unusual year I have ever experienced. Also, I am so happy to be back in the region.  I worked in Oman for three years and have travelled to several of the countries around the area.  I love it here – especially the weather and the people!When I became a teacher 3 decades ago I taught my students about travel in faraway countries.  I taught mostly French and English because I knew it would help my students, as it helped me, when I travel.    I travelled a lot with students across Canada, Europe and Japan. Working at Maplewood is interesting because the people I get to work with come from many different countries also.  That is one of the things that makes Maplewood awesome.When you work with great people you can learn from them and I love learning.   Learning today is so different because of technology.  I think we do need to be careful though because as convenient as technology is it also puts us at risk of depending on it too much.  If we always rely on convenience aps like Talabat and Waze or content aps like Google and YouTube, we might miss out on some of the cool stuff and learning opportunities.     Michael Hubick.
