It’s Me Michael MacDonald
Hi, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Michael MacDonald. I came of age in a small town in rural (very rural) Nova Scotia, Bridgetown, “The Friendly Town.” My three sisters and two brothers all live in Nova Scotia and are successful in various ways. Upon graduating from university I travelled to South Korea to find fame and fortune. I was fortunate enough to find my passion, a great partner and enough money to pay off some student loans. My wife and moved to Middle Sackville in Our son, Noah, was born in Korea and our daughter, Hannah, was born here last November.
This is a funny picture… Clowns. Clowns are funny. A recent picture….
The reason I’m here… My Dad I did not become a teacher because of a life long dream to educate or for any other noble reason. I became a teacher because of a suggestion made by my father. My father was a Teacher, Principal and at that point in his life a Superintendent of schools. He told me that I should complete an education degree because even if I didn't want to be a teacher a degree in education would open up many other doors. His other suggestion was that I stay out of the staff room for the first couple of years. I’m thankful for the times I took his advice.
