I am a teacher based in Port Lambton, Ontario, Canada . I have taught grades 4 through 7 and am currently a curriculum consultant for my district. I am active online via a podcast about interactive whiteboards.

You may know me from: The SMARTBoard Lessons Podcast, my blog, twitter, plurk, skype: bhazzard, or email communications.

I invite you to join me at my newest project: to find cross-classroom collaboration partners. A smarter way to find a collaboration partner.

When not online I practice my slapshot during a local ice hockey league , attempt to jump the boat's wake when wakeboarding , and regularly burn a variety of meat, seafood, & veggies on the grill .
