In this episode I chat with Gerry Chidiac, a High School teacher in British Columbia. Gerry teaches German, Social Justice, and Pre-Employment (working with at risk students struggling to get through school). Gerry has a great last name....and for the record, we are not related!
Listen in to what Gerry has to say about his connection with Ontario, his work teaching Social Justice and Genocide Studies, his connection to the Toronto Blue Jays (Bat flip article), fitting in time to reflect about his beliefs and to write his articles, writing a book, doing what he can to make the world a better place, 7 habits of highly effective people, a recent article he has written about people not being bad, failure/learning/success, the importance of creating happy memories, what he would say to people to help them feel motivated/inspired, being a Christian and working in the the public school system, Canada's multiculturalism, and the Middle East.
Gerry is on local radio, television, YouTube, and writes for his local newspaper and Troy Media. You can find Gerry's Troy media articles here and his local newspaper articles here. Take some time to check out his YouTube channel as well.
You can connect with Gerry on Twitter (@GerryChidiac), Facebook, and/or email.
