Back to School

Ontario – February 24-27, 2014

I did not know the day would come when I’d be attending kindergarten, elementary school, junior high school, senior high school and college, all in one week !

This intense educational immersion took place when I volunteered for the Canadian Wildlife Federation who took me on a school tour to speak to students across the province of Ontario, Canada. Altogether, over 2’000 students listened to my favourite shark stories and got to ask all their questions to both Dr Sean Brilliant, CWF Manager of Marine Programs and myself.

This was the second collaboration between The Watermen Project and the Canadian Wildlife Federation after the webinar held in January.

A big thank you to all the schools for their warm welcome and a special hats off to Joe Grabowski, grade 8 teacher of St. John Catholic School in Guelph, Ontario, for his unmatched enthusiasm and dedication. Check out his blog.

Joe, I would have loved to have a teacher like you in my school years !
