Certificate of Excellence Recipients
William Henderson, Head of Technology Education at Robert Bateman Secondary School in Abbotsford, has three attributes of a great teacher: vision — he has the ability to foresee and take advantage of advances in technology and teaching strategies; commitment — he is intent on helping his students develop to their fullest potential, and on contributing to the development of technology education province-wide; and a love of learning – he regularly upgrades his skills and recently received his masters of education. Mr. Henderson's design communication and information technology programs are popular and highly successful. Classes work on projects for community and industry partners. With this experience and exposure, many students move directly from Grade 12 into highly skilled jobs. DigiFest, an annual conference initiated by Mr. Henderson, supports this by bringing together technology education and industry leaders to keep curriculum relevant for all students.
