Nature Name:  Loon
 
Why this name? I really dig paddling in Algonquin Provincial Park, and I wanted a nature name that captured something of the magic of the place. ‘Sunset’ seemed too universal, and ‘Rock’ just didn’t capture the Canadian Shield. I opted for ‘Loon’ because, in many ways, they represent the feeling of Algonquin that I love most. 
 
BCP/TH role and responsibilities: Loon teaches Civics/Careers, Outdoor Phys. Ed., and Interdisciplinary Studies with Trailhead. He is also in charge of keeping our place free of zombies and full of working technology!
 
Began at BCP: 2011
 
# of years in education: 12
 
What brought you to BCP: Cosmic forces of the universe.
 
Most enjoyable aspect of working with BCP: We have an awesome ‘backyard’ to enjoy.
 
Favourite memory or highlight: Working on paddling skills and creating bonds with students in Algonquin is pretty special.
 
Something related to BCP of which you are most proud: Being able to focus on the ‘active’ part of Active Citizenship in Civics.
