The Wejr Board

…sharing stories that reflect on the present & future system of education


Note:  The opinions expressed on this blog are solely of my opinion and not the opinions of my school or district.

Currently working as a school principal at James Hill Elementary School in Langley, BC. Previous to this, I was principal at Kent Elementary School in Agassiz, BC.  I have spent my career working with students as a high school physical education, math, and science teacher, an intermediate teacher, an elementary vice-principal, as well as a high school volleyball, rugby, track, and basketball coach.

I am a husband to a wonderful wife who runs her own dance studio; I am a proud father of twin girls.

Why “The Wejr Board”?        Growing up, people often made fun of my last name (pronounced Weej-er) and one of them was Weejee (Ouija) Board… which then transformed into Wejr Board… now, one of my passions is discussing the ‘future’ of education so why not use the Wejr Board to do this?

I look forward to participating in the conversations that arise from this blog.  If you agree or disagree with my blogs, please leave comments as this keeps the dialogue going and encourages more learning for me.

    A parent on our school PAC forwarded your blog to us so that we could see Identity Day. Oddly enough I had just assigned a similar project last week. You taught my twin boys Gr. 8 math in 2005-2006 at Brookswood. They still describe you as one of the best teachers they ever had. I keep hoping you’ll come back to Langley. We are expecting lots of admin. retirements soon.

    Wow… thank you so much, Carol, for taking the time to stop by. I remember your boys well – great to have had the privilege of working with them! If you ever need help with Identity Day, be sure to let me know. Also, I would be interested in hearing more about the similar project at your school! Hope that our paths cross in the near future!

    Excellent post Chris. Refreshing to see a BC principal taking on policy issues. This is true educational leadership.
