My name is Brent Jeffery. I am a teacher who has taught Math, French as a Second Language, Social Studies, Physical Education, Health, Ballroom Dancing, Guitar, Recreation, and Learning Strategies, to students from Grade 5 to 9, depending on the subject. In my position, I have been involved in a number of professional activities at the school, county, and provincial levels, including eleven years speaking at various teachers' conventions, sitting on numerous French committees, and serving as the Alberta Teachers' Association representative for the school. On a more local level, I have planned, created, and implemented my own French as a Second Language program; created and produced a variety of Second Language board and card games; deejayed school and community dances; coached and refereed school sports; filmed numerous FSL rock videos with students; and have been interviewed on national news, radio, and print media. Personally, I hold a Class 3 Driver's license and Air Brakes certification and have driven a dump truck for a couple of construction companies. I have also delivered church services as a lay supply minister; worked as a lifeguard; am a published and recorded songwriter; and was a member of the Guinness Book of Records in 2000 and 2009.
