About Me

This is me — Mel Young

Welcome to my blog! 

My name is Mel Young. I am a Curriculum Designer at a college in northern Ontario, Canada. I work in our college’s Teaching and Learning Hub to support pedagogy and best practices in the classroom. I also conduct orientation for new faculty hires — both full time and part time. 

I started this blog as a participant in eCampus Ontario’s Ontario Extend open course for 21st Century Educators. Blogging took me way outside of my comfort zone but I am now loving it! I love that I am able to connect with other passionate educators from across the globe. 

A little more about me– I have an amazing spouse and two gorgeous children. I love living in northern Ontario because there are so many beautiful things to see and do (snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing, scuba diving, hiking, etc.) Here’s a glimpse at my life outside of education:
