Books by Title
Dragons at the Schoolhouse Door
Steve Hepting often wonders why he left the classroom for the principal’s office. At least his nemesis, Superintendent Jennifer Capelli, is more interested in a secret scheme to transform what she believes to be a moribund education system.
Education is so littered with lingo and jargon and so filled with non-sensical acronyms, it is a wonder anyone can cut through the obfuscation. The relentless drive for higher piles of edubabble is such a fascinating trend that it made for an appropriate title for this glossary containing 400 quick-read entries.
Steve Hepting is a man to be admired. From an impoverished background he achieves financial success as a turn-of-the-millennium stock broker, only to implode financially and romantically in the tech-stock bust of 2001-02. He turns to teaching, initially seeing the job as "too much work for too little pay."
High School Edubabble
A humour-filled satirical work such as this must include the impact of technology on teachers and students. Unlike previous generations, today’s teachers face tech-addled youths who are drowning in a churning sea of information, much of it of dubious quality.
Smugglers at the Lighthouse
Accepting an offer to stay with his cousins in a small community on the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island, Ben joins them for a hike along a winding trail that crosses untamed beaches, traverses rocky headlands, and snakes through the moss-strewn rainforest.
Yurek: Edge of Extinction
Teen sasquatch Yurek is suffering from a serious affliction killing many of his peers and he boldly leaves his high-mountain home, seeking human help to find a cure.
