"Getting to grate" a valueable oppurtunty at Park West School

May 8, 2015

We just received this email from our children's school, in Halifax:

Just a reminder that Friday, May 8th is the last day to complete the Getting to great Surveys.  Voluntary participation in this survey provides valueable information to help us identify strengths and challenges at our school, so we can do our part to enhance the oppurtunties for our students to learn.

I always grumbled that they were more interested in spelling than creativity at this school... but that is some pretty creative spelling!

Hello. I'm a journalist, radio producer and teacher. I've worked in Latin America and the Caribbean for most of my career. My work has taken me across a minefield, into a gunfight, paddling a dugout canoe and inside the homes of many brave and generous people. I have also produced several major international reporting projects where a large part of my job was recruiting and mentoring local reporters. I love teaching, and besides journalism, I have taught soccer, robotics, anthropology and English.


What they say

Conrad is a reporter's reporter - courageous, compassionate and creative. No easy press conferences for him. Conrad takes on assignments that might scare off others and always delivers. A first-rate storyteller.
